4-H Summer Showcase

While things look different this year, we want to wish our 4-Hers the best of luck with their Summer Showcase! The Summer Showcase will allow our 4-Hers to exhibit their hard work in a fun, safe atmosphere. This event is closed to the public to allow them to better follow social distancing guidelines. We ask that you respect these rules and do not attempt to attend.

Certain shows will be live streamed through Walton Webcasting and we have provided direct links at the bottom of this page. Additional live streams will be taking place on the Elkhart County 4-H's Facebook page. We encourage family, friends, and our fairgoers to enjoy the shows virtually and cheer them on from a distance. Please understand that not all shows will be livestreamed.


Due to COVID-19, this year's 4-H auction will be online and will be premium only. Registered bidders understand that a premium auction acts as a fundraiser for the 4-H exhibitor and allow the bidder the advertising / promotion of supporting the 4-H livestock auction. THE HIGH BIDDER DOES NOT PURCHASE THE RIGHTS OF LEASE OR OWNERSHIP TO THE PROJECT BEING OFFERED. The 4-H exhibitor may keep the project or sell it to a market buyer through negotiated sale or separate auction. Premium sale buyers desire to financially assist 4-H exhibitors ONLY. No transfer of ownership is implied when a lot is designated as a “Premium Auction” Item. Premium sale prices are to be strictly considered a gift to the 4-H exhibitor.

The auction link will be shared as soon as it is available. We encourage you to watch the Elkhart County 4-H Facebook Page for the link as well as here once the auction gets closer.

Buyer Groups

  • Buyer Groups will require a slightly different approach for an online auction.
  • In the past, the group coordinator would turn in the list into the auction committee.
  • The committee would bill buyers with a buyer’s number as an add-on. We cannot do that this year. These buyers will have to register themselves and add-on their amount to the lot between August 4th through August 8th at noon.
  • Each lot can have as many add-ons as needed.
  • A Buyer Group could bid the amount of money they will collect for those individuals who do not want to register for the online auction. The buyer group would be required to make the payment for this amount and collect from the individuals on their own.
  • If you have any questions about Buyer’s Groups, please contact the extension office staff at 574-533-0554.
