San Joaquin AgFest: Junior Show and Auction
This event has already taken place, but here is the past event information
The biggest and best junior livestock show and auction in the county is the San Joaquin AgFest.
Local 4-H and FFA Youth with projects in the beef, swine, sheep, goats, dairy, rabbits, poultry, turkeys and dog areas will compete to see whose animal is the best. The best market animals will be sold during the livestock auction on Saturday at 9:00am. There are also horticulture, vocational agriculture projects and floral exhibits to admire.
The Farm to Fork Food and Wine Fundraiser is Tuesday night at 5:00pm. Local restaurants and wineries will showcase their best. Local chefs will demonstrate cooking techniques and the kids will parade their animals in costume for entertainment. Up for auction during the evening will be top honor projects of wood and metal, made by students.
AgFest showcases many projects that are a part of the students’ agricultural studies for their four-year high school programs, and can affect scholarships and entrance into some colleges and universities. Some of the exhibitors started their projects as young 4-H members and developed them into successful businesses that will fund their future education and become a career path.
The San Joaquin AgFest Junior Livestock & Auction is an independent event put on by an all-volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to support and promotion of 4-H and FFA, and the future of our children and our nation.
