We are sad to announce the cancellation of our 2020 event due to COVID-19.
Expect to see us back at the Canfield Fairgrounds in April 2021!

Celebrating Ten Years!

For ten years, DairyPalooza has been the premier 4-H dairy event in the state of Ohio. Every April, 4-Hers from across the state travel to our event excited to learn something new. Our programs have educated hundreds of future dairy leaders, taught important life skills, and inspired youth to pursue careers in dairy. 

We invite you to celebrate our tenth anniversary with us! We’ll start off the morning with a state-certified Quality Assurance program for 4-H aged youth, while adults and Cloverbuds can attend tracks of sessions designed for them. In the afternoon, youth can go to breakout sessions of their choice covering a range of topics – nutrition, showmanship and fitting, reproduction, genomics and more.

2021 DairyPalooza Event Info

Late- or walk-in registrations are welcome – just bring your completed registration form to the table along with cash or check made out to 2021 DairyPalooza.

Morning sessions are taught by certified QA presenters and our program fulfills Ohio 4-H Quality Assurance requirements. Check with your county extension office to see if DairyPalooza satisfies their Quality Assurance requirement. We submit a list of all session participants to each county’s extension office after our event, and give you a certificate of completion for each participant as well.

Morning sessions are part of the programming for all 4-H aged youth participants – even if you’ve already done Quality Assurance, our hands-on activities are sure to teach you something new!

We’ll break for lunch around noon and begin afternoon session blocks around 1 p.m. Our event will conclude with an afternoon wrap-up, door prizes and drawings around 3 p.m. and then everyone will head for home! A full schedule for our 2021 event will be available closer to the event date.
