Last call to attend Celebration of Youth

Guests prepare for the live auction.

Celebration of Youth is just a few weeks away! If you are 21 years or older and haven’t purchased your tickets yet, be sure to visit our website before registration closes on September 26. Visitors from all over the state will be “zipping into” Leeds Farm on October 6 for an evening full of fun, fellowship, and fundraising, and you won’t want to miss this year’s festivities.

A guest enjoys donuts provided by Patterson Fruit Farm.The evening begins at 5 p.m. and guests will have the opportunity to bid on silent auction items and participate in fun farm activities. Attendees can take a turn on the zip line and pedal carts, go on a hayride around the farm, and much more! City Barbeque is on the menu for dinner, and David Spires is returning to entertain with classic country music throughout the evening. After dinner, guests can watch the pig races and participate in the live auction to close out the evening. All proceeds from Celebration of Youth go directly to supporting Ohio 4-H youth programming and operations across the state.
