The Rural Youth Fair is the biggest provincial 4-H event of the year each September. It's the last stop on the summer exhibition circuit for 4-H members. Most clubs start up again in late September or October.

4-H is one of PEI's longest running youth organizations for young people. It is a family-oriented, community-based, youth organization which provides opportunities for leadership and life skills while promoting agriculture awareness.

The 4-H motto is "Learn to Do by Doing."

PEI has over 600 members and 300 leaders who belong to one of 23 clubs. Members enroll in projects, give back to the community, make new friends and have lots of fun.

How do you become a 4-H member?

You must be 9 to 21 years old to join 4-H. Some clubs do accept younger members as Clover Buds. You can become a member of 4-H by joining one of the clubs located in communities across the province.

Where are 4-H clubs located?

Clubs are located across PEI from West Prince to Souris and many communities in between. View locations of 4-H clubs in PEI below.
