Denver County Fair

When: All weekend!

Where: National Western Complex

Cost: $10

What: This annual event celebrates the creativity and personality of Denver, with events, exhibitors, blue ribbon competitions and more!

Denver County Fair honors the fine traditions and values of America’s county fairs, which have been enjoyed by millions of people for over 100 years.

But, we are NEW. Although land was bought for a Denver Fair in the 1800s, that plan was interrupted by a little thing called the “Civil War” and no fair was ever launched. (That land is now City Park, by the way.) Somehow, the idea never came to fruition until NOW – in the 21st century, when Denver is a modern, bustling metropolis, forging a reputation as “the new creative capital.”

… So as we enter into our second year, expect us to do things differently than the fairs that were established last century, or the century before.  We are new, we are urban and we are still pioneers!

Revolutionary Fair Design! This year we've got 14 interlocking indoor pavilions, each with its own exhibitiors, vendors, stage demonstrations, entertainment and open competitions! Even our CARNIVAL IS INDOORS!

 

Hope to see you there for the fun!!
