Garfield County Fair Board members are needed for 2023/2024 and future years. In collaboration with Garfield County Administration, volunteer fair board members assist in ensuring the successful promotion, production, and execution of the Garfield County Fair & Rodeo. The fair is held the last week of July most years.
Fair board members serve three-year terms and the board typically meets the first Tuesday evening of each month, rotating between the Garfield County Fairgrounds in Rifle and the Garfield County Administration Building in Glenwood Springs.
