This one-day event is open to participants aged 8 to 19 by Jan. 1 of the current year. Exhibitors must be Michigan 4-H members and must own the rabbits or cavies (guinea pigs) they enter. Exhibitors may enter as many breeds as they wish; however, if breed show times conflict, another 4-H member must help show the entries. Exhibitors will be responsible for transporting their rabbits and cavies to and from the judging tables. Spectators are welcome!

Pre-entry for this event is optional. Entries will also be taken from 6:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. on the day of the event. Pre-entry will expedite your wait time in the entry line.
