Colorado State Fair
August 26th through September 5th

“Colorado became a state in 1876 and before the Colorado flag flew high, the State Fair was already earning its place in history. In 1869, approximately 2,000 people converged on what is now Pueblo for a horse exhibition; and from that meager beginning was born the Colorado State Fair. The Fair continues to call Pueblo home, and in fact, has only cancelled once during its entire history. In 1917, during World War I, the Fairgrounds’ horse stables and open space offered an ideal training facility for the Army National Guard. Since then, the Colorado State Fair has developed into the largest summer event in the State and offers families a fun, educational summer vacation!”
