The Dipper (food stand at County Fair)

The 4-H “Dipper” is a tradition that has been a part of the Winnebago County 4-H program for over 30 years when it started out as a small ice cream stand at the County Fair. More than 250 youth and adult volunteers work at “The Dipper” each year. All funds raised support Winnebago County 4-H events and activities.

In addition, “The Dipper” provides youth the opportunity to learn valuable business skills. Youth are trained in safe food handling procedures, customer service, time management and how to work as a team. As a result, 4-H youth are more prepared to enter the work force as young adults.

“The Dipper” is open during the County Fair every year and is located in the permanent Food Court building located to the south of the Expo Hall.
