With, the price of gas many people are changing their vacations to “stay-cations”. What better way to stay close to home and have a lot of fun than going to the Delta County Fair? It’s a great deal!

This year on Sunday we will have a Dutch Oven cook-off at 9:00 AM as well as a Junior Rodeo with 4-H/FFA Ranch Horse events right after. Following the 4-H/FFA Horse Show on Monday the Antique Tractor Pull takes place at 6:00 PM just before the Team Roping Saddle Shoot-Out at 7:00 PM. Watch your cares disappear during the Magic Show at 8:00 on Tuesday night. Thursday evening at 7:00 is the time for the action packed Demolition Derby and there will be a whole lot more action beginning at 6:30 PM on Friday with Team Penning, Ranch Rodeo, Mutton Bustin’, Calf Ridin’ and the Local Team Roping Shoot-Out Finals. On Saturday you can attend the Junior Market Livestock Sale at 2:00 PM and stay for the CPRA Rodeo, Mutton Bustin’, Calf Ridin’ and the Delta County Fair & Rodeo Queen Coronation later that evening.

Many events are free however tickets are reasonably priced and come in a variety of ways. Packets are available for four paid nights which include the events on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Prices for packets are $25.00 for adults and $20.00 for children 12 and under. Family passes, which cover two adults and two children for all 4 nights, are just $85.00.

Packets are available at the following locations: Sisson Feed and Seed and Jeans Westerner in Delta; Hotchkiss Auto, Roberts Short Stop, and Gambles in Hotchkiss; and Paonia,”arm and Home Supply in Paonia.

Of course you can purchase tickets for individual events at the gate. Prices are $8.00 for adults, $7.00 for Seniors, and $6.00 for kids 12 and under_ With these prices you’ll probably even have money left over for a funnel cake and a cool glass of lemonade while you’re there.
