Pike County 4-H Fairgrounds

The Pike County 4-H Fairgrounds are located within Hornaday Park, just off of State Road 56 in Petersburg, Indiana.  (Hornady Park's address is 1211 W State Road 56, Petersburg IN 47567.)  Click here for a map.


Pike County 4-H Building & Robinson Building

The 4-H Building is air-conditioned, has a complete kitchen and two restrooms. We have 23 eight-foot tables and 180 chairs available.  The maximum occupancy is 200 people.

During the summer, the Robinson Building may also be rented for events.

Need extra tables and chairs for an event off of the fairgrounds?  We can help.

To inquire about renting the 4-H Building or Robinson Building, or renting tables and/or chairs, please call the Extension Office at (812) 354-6838.

If you are interested in a specific date, please call early!  The 4-H Building is frequently reserved from May to September. Additionally, there is limited availability during the month of July as we prepare for, celebrate and clean up after the 4-H Fair.

UPDATE: Effective April 2012, our insurance company now requires us to ask all renters to provide a Certificate of Liability Insurance for all events. Please call the Extension Office at 812-354-6838 if you have any questions about this new policy.



Note:  Although you must enter Hornady Park to reach the 4-H Fairgrounds, the Fairgrounds and the Park operate as separate entities: the Pike County 4-H Council is responsible for the Pike County 4-H Fairgrounds, while the City of Petersburg is responsible for Hornady Park.  The Pike County 4-H Council and the Extension Office does not handle reservations for park facilities, nor does City Hall handle reservations for the Fairgrounds.

If you are interested in reserving an open-air "shelter house" in Hornady Park (near the 'lake', for example), or the Peter Brenton Cabin, please contact Petersburg City Hall at 354-8511.  City Hall also fields calls regarding the Splash Park.

If you are interested in reserving a shelter house or other facility at Prides Creek Park, contact Prides Creek at 354-6798.  (Prides Creek Park is located on County Road 400 N in Petersburg.)
