2021 Junior Livestock Show Refund Application

It is with great sadness that we are announcing the cancellation of the 2021 New Mexico State Fair Junior Livestock Shows and Sale. This decision comes after thorough consultations with parents, exhibitors, 4-H and FFA leadership, medical experts and public health officials. While we will surely miss the activity and excitement the youth of 4-H and FFA bring to the north end of the grounds, we have concluded that canceling the shows is the right decision.

Please know that the New Mexico State Fair began planning the shows in good faith and were encouraged by our state’s success in the handling of the pandemic. However, the recent rapid uptick of COVID cases, combined with a new public health order has made it problematic for some families to attend the fair this year. We understand our exhibitors’ difficult decision to find other events to showcase their projects and wish them success in those endeavors.

We will be issuing full refunds of all fees to our exhibitors. Please use the form on our website to make your request. We ask that you please be patient with us as we work through the requests.

Thank you for your understanding and your continued support of the New Mexico State Fair. We are confident we will welcome 4-H and FFA exhibitors in 2022 for a full State Fair experience.
