Minnesota 4-H State Arts-In

Minnesota 4-H Arts-In is an eight-day intensive arts experience, as they prepare a musical to perform during the Minnesota State Fair. Youth gain experiences in performing arts, including singing, dancing, acting, instrumental accompaniment, costume design, set construction and technical work. Each year, 4-H State Arts-In youth perform at least 40 shows to 12,000 audience members in the 4-H building on the fairgrounds.

Participants continue to work on goals while putting on several daily performances, and play leadership roles for 4-H members and act as representatives for 4-H building visitors. More info.

4-H Share the Fun State Fair Showcase

Youth from counties prepare and perform a play, dance, musical, or other act. Each county nominates one group to perform at the State Fair. More info.
