Mardi Gras is a family-oriented celebration that sees all Weld County 4-H Clubs come together for a night of fun, prizes and of course food!  The event’s purpose is to raise funds for the Weld County 4-H Foundation.   In addition to the fun booths and food at Mardi Gras, we also host a silent auction that generates revenue for our 4-H Foundation.  The Foundation is the driving force behind all the 4-H programming here in Weld County.  Their working budget supports our members as they take advantage of the many opportunities offered to them in 4-H including leadership development, scholarships, education opportunities, travel, and competition. 

This year’s Mardi Gras theme is Wild, Wild West.  The event is on Saturday, November 20th from 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. located at the Exhibition Building, Island Grove Park.  The Clubs will work together on a variety of fun booths that include traditional carnival activities such as cake walk, skeet ball, putt-putt golf, and football.  Along the theme, there will also be a mechanical bull, western cornhole, calf roping and nerf guns.  To add to the excitement new to 2021, we will have a gaming trailer where kids can interact in groups with virtual reality and other x-box type games.  Don’t miss the silent auction—offered this year online with items displayed during the evening.  Finally, don’t forget to buy your tickets for the Traeger Grill Raffle with the winner being announced that night. 

Admission is free and game tickets are just 25 cents each (each game taking multiple tickets to play).  There will be great food at the Concession stand featuring homemade chili and pies, fun treats such as cotton candy, snow cones and popcorn out on the floor!  You can purchase pre-sale tickets to enter a prize drawing with $600 in cash prizes.

The evening is topped off by a youth dance from 9:30 p.m. to midnight with an admission fee of $5.00

Come join us for some good old fashioned family fun, adults get to catch up with friends from around the county while the kids get to run and play in a safe environment.
