Nearly five hundred 4-H members from 39 clubs around the Calgary region are gathering at the Stampede grounds for 4-H on Parade this weekend.

Youth willl be showcasing all of their hard-work from the year in the Nutrien Western Events Centre.

Cailey Church, who has been a member for nine years, says there will be so many different projects on display.

“There’s everything from horses and they do english and western styles, there’s beef steer, beef female, sheep, canine and clever kids, which is everyone under nine-years of age,“ says Church.

Church says she has gained so much from the program.

“I’ve learned communication skills and leadership skills and I would not be able to speak in front of a group of people if it wasn’t for 4-H. I have been able to take away many friendships.”

Church says 4-H has allowed her to gain many skills and make friends from all over the world.

4-H on Parade has been running for 60 years.
