Celebration of Youth



Celebration of Youth is the largest fundraising event held annually benefiting Ohio 4-H Youth Development. 


The 2022 4-H Celebration of Youth will be held on Thursday, October 6, 2022, at Leeds Farm in Ostrander, Ohio.


This year's theme is "Honoring Our Past and Zipping Into the Future" and festivities will begin at 5 p.m. Before dinner, guests will have the opportunity to participate in our annual silent auction, as well as a number of farm activities, including hayrides, zip line, pumpkin jump, pedal carts, and more. Dinner will conclude at 7 p.m. and guests will get to watch the pig races and participate in the live auction before the evening wraps up around 8 p.m.

This is a casual evening and all the money raised supports Ohio 4-H programming and operations. This event will follow the most current COVID-19 safety guidelines. 

Please note that this is a 21 and over event. The kids are away so the adults can play!
