The first Winneshiek County Celebrity Beef Show is Friday, July 11, immediately following the scheduled 4-H/FFA Beef Show at the fair.

This event is sponsored by the Winneshiek County 4-H Endowment.  

Sponsorships are $100 and payable to Winneshiek County 4-H Endowment. Businesses or individuals may sponsor/nominate a local “celebrity” to show in the Celebrity Beef Show. Celebrities must be 21 years of age to participate.  

The nominated “celebrity” must show from livestock exhibited by a 4-H/FFA member at the 2014 Winneshiek County Fair. They may show the animal alone or with the assistance of the animal owner. The celebrity will be judged on showmanship. Celebrities must make their own arrangements with 4-H/ FFA members to borrow animals for the show.

Celebrities may be signed up at the Extension Office, in the show barn, during the fair.  

Proceeds go to the Winneshiek County 4-H Endowment Fund, which supports 4-H awards, programs, materials, camps, conferences and scholarships.
