FORSYTH, Mo. -- The Taney County 4-H Leaders Council invites all Missouri 4-H and Future Farmers of America (FFA) members to participate in the Second Annual Taney County Youth Fair and Livestock Show starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 28 and Sunday, June 29 at Shadow Rock Park in Forsyth. Members of 4-H and FFA living in contiguous counties of Arkansas are also eligible to participate.

The youth fair includes events for the entire family.  An exhibit hall will be open for participants to display and be judged on their 4-H and FFA projects. There will be games, live music from local bands, craft demonstrations, and food vendors. The Taney County 4-H Leader’s Council will also be hosting a talent show at 3 p.m. on June 28 for children who would like to perform.

The popular livestock show will consist of rabbits, poultry, sheep, goats, cattle, horses, and other animals. On Sunday, a Cowboy Church will begin at 8:30 a.m.

Participant registration information can be found at  There will be no registration fees to participants who register before June13.

Members of the Taney County 4-H Leader’s Council are also looking for sponsors and volunteers for the Youth Fair and Livestock Show. Various levels of sponsorship are available.

Vendors are also welcome to set up during the fair. Organizers say there will be no a fee for vendors to set up at the fair. “But we would ask that vendors consider a small donation or a silent auction item to help with the fair cost,” said Chris Gaut, treasurer of the Leader’s Council.
