Before the Colorado flag flew high, the Colorado State Fair was already earning its place in history. In 1869, approximately 2,000 people gathered in Pueblo for a horse exhibition; and from that meager beginning was born the Colorado State Fair.
The Fair continues to call Pueblo home, and has only cancelled once during its entire history....in 1917, during World War I, the Fairgrounds' horse stables and open space was used as a 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.
Join the many thrill-seekers, foodies, and just plain curious as the fun begins August 23 - September 2...at the Colorado State Fair...events include:
- Concerts and Entertainment
- Special Events
- Carnival Midway and Special Rides
- Numerous Free Attractions
