Deadline:  Wednesday, February 1, 2017 by 5 p.m.

Check in: 8 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.

8:40 a.m. Mandatory Exhibitor/Volunteer Meeting at the inside arena

This fun and educational event is free to all third grade classes in Solano County and features a wide variety of rotational learning stations and displays.  Activities are designed to give children the opportunity to learn about food and fiber production from new perspectives, with a particular emphasis on the agricultural wealth of Solano County.  Children participate in hands-on displays and educational presentations 

We would like to invite everyone to participate in this year’s Ag day, however from previous experience we have had to put a few restrictions in place.

No volunteers younger than 9 years old will be accepted.  If you want to bring a younger child, they must be under the supervision of an adult at all times and they will not receive a t-shirt.

This year we will only be accepting 2 kids plus an adult supervisor per animal displayed.  If you have more kids volunteer than animals, please come up with an inexpensive hands on craft related to your project.  Some examples of craft projects are:

  • Touch and feel with different animal foods or pelts
  • Different kids of eggs from a poultry project
  • Planting seeds for a gardening project
  • Vegetable stamping
  • Coloring craft related to your project
  • Display equipment used in your project

Use your imagination and come up with something fun for 3rd grade kids.

No absentee letters for schools will be provided by either the county 4-H staff or the Solano County Fair. 

The fair will provide bedding for the animals displayed, however you must bring your own feeders, water containers and food.
