Minnesota 4-H Arts-In is an eight-day intensive arts experience. Youth prepare a musical to perform during the Minnesota State Fair, getting experience in performing arts, including singing, dancing, acting, instrumental accompaniment, costume design, set construction and technical work.

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
