The Garfield County Fair and Rodeo kicks off its 79th year on July 31, with a renewed pride in presenting western Colorado’s pre-eminent Western heritage event.
Steeped in the American West, this year’s theme “Stars, Stripes, and Fair Delights,” will be celebrated throughout, with crowd favorites the 4-H livestock show, family rodeo, heritage night, parade, and more showcasing Garfield County’s proud traditions.
The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association ProRodeo (PRCA) returns to Rifle in 2017, along with the ever-exciting demolition derby. On the heels of two rockin’ sold-out concerts in 2016, more fantastic live music is planned this year, with artist announcements coming soon.
The folks who work to present the Garfield County Fair each year are like family, and we hope that spirit of collaboration shines through.
We can assure you that this year’s fair will be the best one yet, and look forward to seeing everyone in Rifle this summer.
