What are 4-H Events?

4-H events are held throughout the year and are open to all 4-H members. These exciting educational experiences allow members to: 

  • Develop public speaking skills by presenting 4-H project work to the public.
  • Receive helpful feedback essential for growth.
  • Apply previous knowledge gained through 4-H projects to learn about new topics and develop new skills.

Participation in 4-H events is voluntary but highly encouraged as it helps foster motivation, learning, and growth.

Dates to Calendar Sept Update



I am happy to announce that beginning July 1, 2021 the University of California 4-H Youth Development has relaxed some of the guidelines for in-person 4-H activities in accordance with State of California and University of California. The limited resumption of in-person activities will ensure the 4-H program continues to provide safe learning environments to protect youth and adults, while at the same time allowing for increased engagement and opportunities to build relationships and engage our communities.

Visit the California 4-H website for updated guidelines and resources.

I'm so very proud of how the California 4-H Youth Development Program conducted themselves and managed these very challenging 18-months. I greatly appreciate the leadership and dedication of our 4-H professionals and volunteers in successfully creating new opportunities to keep members engaged and thank all the members and families for your on-going interest and participation in the program.
