What is it? The Performance Arts Festival is an event where youth are invited to perform in speaking, reading, demonstration, and music categories as individuals, or drama and musical performance categories with their 4-H clubs. Judges provide feedback and placings and most categories count as fair entries, meaning you earn fair ribbons and fair premiums. All 4-H members are invited to share their talents at the Performance Arts Festival, and families and friends are invited to be in the audience! *Cloverbuds can participate in the 4-H Pledge, and club performances, see event descriptions for age categories.
When is it? The 4-H Performance Arts Festival will be held Saturday, April 30 at Turtle Lake School beginning at 9AM.
What can you do? Individual music, speaking, reading and demonstration can be performed and judged as a fair entry. See your county fair book for requirements. If you are entering any of these areas, you will need to put them on your fair entry registration form in order to receive your premium.
On-Stage Drama, Mini-Drama and Group Musical Performance are all ways for your 4-H club to have a great time learning and performing together! If you need ideas for performances, contact your Extension Office where play books are available to borrow. An internet search will also reveal plays and skits for download and use. These group performances are not fair entry categories, but are for fun, entertainment, and building your skills!
Read the entry forms for specific information about length of performances and other things you need to know. For all individual and club performance, judges will talk with performers and help reflect upon what went well and possible improvements. Please see Event Descriptions and Scoring Guides on your Extension website: polk.extension.wisc.edu or barron.extension.wisc.edu.
