The 4-H Youth Development Program, the largest youth serving program in the United States, provides informal educational opportunities to youth, ages 8-19. Activities are offered to youth in urban, rural, and suburban communities through local clubs, school programs, special interest clubs, and individual membership.
In Westmoreland County, over 3,000 youth participate in 4-H opportunities yearly, directed by over 300 adult volunteer leaders. Learn more about the 4-H program in Westmoreland County.
The goals of the 4-H Program are to increase knowledge on a variety of project areas while enhancing life-skills such as decision-making, public speaking, and leadership. We try to accomplish these goals through group interactions such as: communicating, working cooperatively, and being responsible. The youth learn by experiential activities– preparing, designing, and evaluating their projects. Many 4-H Events are held at Westmoreland Fairgrounds throughout the year.

Overly’s Country Christmas
Overly’s Country Christmas is fun for the entire family! Come to Westmoreland Fairgrounds to warm yourself at a bonfire, enjoy a sleigh ride or wagon ride (weather permitting), visit Santa’s Workshop, see the area’s largest G-Scale Model Train Display, and stroll Christmas village.
- The display features 2.4 million twinkling lights. If all the strands of lights were put end-to-end it would stretch to Mars! (That’s Mars, PA!)
- The display lights 15 acres of the Westmoreland Fairgrounds with 5 acres accessible to the guests through the Christmas Village and walk through area.
- It takes up to 75 volunteers each night to run the display.
Overly’s Country Christmas® is a nationally-recognized holiday light display that has been featured on “Good Morning America” and other ABC, NBC, and CBS affiliated television programs.
