Spring Small Animal Showdown

The Utah 4-H Spring Small-Animal Showdown is a SUPER event for all your small-animal project kids with dogs, rabbits, chickens, and ducks.

Join us for educational clinics on rabbit, poultry, and dog showmanship in the morning, and then try your hand at showing each species after lunch (provided with registration). We will have spare animals for showmanship, but we encourage you to bring your own.

Open to all registered 4-H members, including Cloverbuds (Grades K-12)!
