Routt County Fair | 100th Fair!
Celebrating 100 Years of Routt County Fair!
Join us August 14-17, 2014 at the Routt County Fairgrounds in Hayden, CO
as we celebrate the 100th Routt County Fair!
The Routt County Fair has been held on the same 37-acre tract where it was launched in 1914. Stories made and told sitting I the stands and leaning on the fence railing reflect the heritage of the Yampa Valley's ranching, mining and recreation communities.
The first Fair was held September 9-11 in 1914, a year after the railroad opened the Yampa Valley to trade and tourism and the same year Howelsen Hill Ski Area and Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School and Camp were created. The 1994 Fair & Rodeo was hailed as the Best New Western Slope Rodeo by the Colorado Professional Rodeo Association.
Fair Family Favorites Cookbook
A collection of recipes from those with ties to the Routt County Fair, celebrating 100 years in 2014. The book includes local recipes, blue ribbon recipes, recipes shared by families with connections to our Colorado county and its robust County Fair. They are recipes pioneers brought with them from "home" and recipes that evoke memories of rows of luscious cakes and clear jars of home canned pickles. Fair Family Favorites represents the cream of the crop in Routt County, Colorado!
