PUEBLO, Colo. — The Colorado State Fair Board of Authority has voted to hold a variety of competitive activities at the Colorado State Fairgrounds as part of the reimagined 2020 State Fair Aug. 28-Sept. 7.

The 2020 competitive events are not open to the public and will operate with strict indoor and outdoor health protocols in place, including limited guests accompanying youth competitors. All events will be livestreamed on the state fair website.
The public is invited to take in a taste of the fair with a Drive-Thru Fair Food Event, taking place Aug. 28-31, and to participate in the Colorado State Fair Foundation’s annual Youth in Ag Golf Tournament at Walking Stick Golf Course on Aug. 28.
