CELEBRATING 100 YEARS OF ROUTT COUNTY FAIR!
The Routt County Fair is held in August each year at the Routt County Fairgrounds in Hayden, Colorado. A County tradition since 1914! Demolition Derby, Barn Dance, bull riding, 4H shows and more.
It’s confirmed, the Colorado Lottery folks will be at the Routt County Fairgrounds on Friday, October 10 at 1:00 p.m. They are presenting the Routt County Fairgrounds with their “Starburst Award” for our Bath House project that utilized a $200,000 GOCO grant. You are invited to attend the award ceremony. CO Lottery is inviting prominent local media.
Money Well Spent - Starburst Awards recognize excellence in the use of Lottery funds for community and conservation projects. Winners are chosen based on the creativity of the project, economic and social impact on the community, and whether the project achieved its goal. Here are our 2014 winners
ROUTT COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS
Routt County used Lottery dollars to build a new and improved bathhouse at the fairgrounds. The previous 46-year-old restrooms had no showers, poor lighting, and lacked proper heat. The restrooms had been closed since 2008. The new and improved building is now widely used by visitors, users of the skate park across the street, hunters, and even local contractors and truckers. Great job!
Our project is featured with the other winners on the CO lottery website. We are #18 as you scroll through the photos.

Bricks will be 8” x 8” and will be engraved as you desire.
