Welcome to the 83rd Garfield County Fair & Rodeo

While nothing in these unprecedented times is guaranteed we look forward to presenting a 2021 Garfield County Fair and Rodeo. The board along with the help of the BOCC and county staff have worked diligently to implement and observe ever changing COVID-19 protocols. This is to ensure the safety and wellness of our beloved guests. We appreciate the continued support of our sponsors, participants and patrons while we work through this together. We look forward to getting things back on track in order to bring the community an event all can enjoy and a cause to rally around. We’ve missed the normalcy and look forward to a barn full of 4-H animals, the noise of a carnival, the buzz of excitement that comes with a rodeo and a concert with friends. The Board, myself and all that have put so much into this look forward to seeing you there. – President Klayton Costanzo

It is with great pleasure that I welcome everyone back to our county fair. After the events of the last year, the Fair Board has been working to bring you a great 2021 Fair. We want everyone to join us in “Roaring into the 20’s” as we look ahead to a great future for Garfield County. Come with friends and family as we renew old acquaintances at the 2021 Fair. – Levy Burris

I’m looking forward to roaring into the 2021 Garfield County Fair! I love the all american experience of the county fair. For me it’s all about the kids and family, agriculture, and giving back to the community. – Kate Lewis

What the fair means to me: To me it’s a way of giving back to the people of the county. It’s about family, friends, and a way to show off talent and hard work of the people of Garfield County. – Duston Harris

The Garfield County Fair Board is committed to embracing the western way of life. Our efforts facilitate 4-H programs, agriculture, open class and many other events to ensure that Garfield County citizens can enjoy a week of fun and community spirit. – Grant Wright

2020 brought many challenges for everyone but looking forward I’m very proud to be part of our community and the Fair Board. – Donna Marye

Hello all, as 7th generation Coloradan I am pleased to serve as a fair board member! Having spent much of my life in rural Colorado, I have a love and appreciation for our farm and ranching community. And who doesn’t like a great rodeo and concert to boot. Here is to having a great 2021 Garfield County Fair & Rodeo. – Shannon Stowe

The fair is about community, and bringing all walks of life together for fun and enjoyment; there is something for everyone. After growing up going to the Garfield County Fair, I want to give back to my community and help create lifelong memories for everyone. Especially after 2020, I’m excited for the 2021 fair to bring the community together again and have the best fair yet. – Leah Bergener

The Garfield County Fair is a celebration of our local community, and the way of life in Garfield County. This event packs in quality time for families, a celebration of hard work, and realization for those efforts for our youth. It brings together a sense of togetherness, and drives home a cohesive community feeling, while recognizing and celebrating the heritage that helped grow this county to what it is today. I am excited to be a part of the Garfield County Fair Board and the mixture of new and traditional ideas we have collaborated on to make the fair Improve every year! – Tyler Davis
