There is always so much to do at the Ocean County Fair, but truly it's all about the 4H and the amazing animals. The 4H tent has so much going on with games, prizes, and learning from the people that take care of and raise these animals.

The history of the Ocean County Fair from

The Ocean County Fair has been a staple event in Ocean County since 1947. By 1967, the one-day "Ocean County Field Day" had become a three-day "Ocean County Fair" with the participation of over 80 4-H clubs, and attendance of over 60,000 people.

In 1982 the Ocean County Fair was expanded to a four-day event where it remains a non-profit educational event for the celebration of the entire Ocean County community.

My favorite part of the fair when I go every year is of course the "fair" food and the community coming out together for a couple of nights to support the 4-H clubs. The pig races are so much fun.
