Board of County Commissioners
Welcome to the 2017 Garfield County Fair and Rodeo!
Garfield County is celebrating its 79th Garfield County Fair and Rodeo from July 31st through August 6th. The theme “Stars, Stripes and Fair Delights”, is a tribute to this great country and our county’s enjoyment of all things fair. This year, the fair presents, Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association ProRodeo (PRCA) and Womens Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) along with Xtreme Bulls. This year’s concert is even bigger and better with three big names, Pam Tillis and Lorrie Morgan will open the fair concert on Friday night and Scotty McCreery the youngest man and first country music artist in history to have his first album debut atop the all-genre Billboard Top 200 albums chart will headline the concert. What an incredible combination!
We also have the Demolition Derby which is always a sold out event as it is a crowd favorite and this year, we have added the Tuff Truck Challenge on Sunday!
There are also family favorites like the 4-H livestock show, family rodeo, heritage night, parade, car show, and the midway of family fun for everyone and tasty fair food from the vendors. Lot’s to do and enjoy at the County Fair!
Without the selfless dedication from our fair board, staff, partners, committees, program chairs, volunteers and many others, the fair would not continue to be the success that it is today. We’ve said it before and it remains true in 2017…the fair gets better every year!
“Tis the season to – Ride – Rope – and enjoy fair delights, enjoy! – It’s your County Fair!” said Commissioner John Martin.
“Howdy Folks – Welcome to the 2017 Garfield County Fair and Rodeo! Have fun, enjoy and be safe. We’re happy to have you, if you get a chance, say thanks to all the hard working volunteers who make it happen,” said Commissioner Mike Samson.
“Thanks to all our guests for joining us in celebrating our community and our western heritage at the Garfield County Fair and Rodeo,” said Commissioner Tom Jankovsky.
As your Board of County Commissioners, we invite you to join us in celebrating our western Colorado heritage. We hope to see you there!
