The Routt County Board of County Commissioners welcomes you to the 108th Routt County Fair! With continued County support and thousands of hours from dedicated volunteers, today's Routt County Fair will be held in the same historic location as it was in 1914.
Country Music Artist Chris LeDoux said it best, "But if they ever saw a sunrise on a mountain mornin', watched those cotton candy clouds roll by, they'd know why I live beneath these western skies." Through the dedication of people who love waking up beneath these western skies every day, we get to enjoy the Routt County Fair. Chris LeDoux continues, "I got peace of mind and elbow room, I love the smell of sage in bloom. Catch a rainbow on my fishin' line, we got county fairs and rodeos, ain't a better place for my kids to grow." The Routt County Fair is a tradition that brings our community together to celebrate our agricultural heritage and rural way of living.
The Routt County Fair continues its long-standing history of educating our community and visitors about agricultural topics, such as animal husbandry, and self-sustainability through land management, home economics, and food preservation. The Board of County Commissioners commends the Fair and Routt County 4-H for bringing together families through nonagricultural avenues such as robotics, shooting sports, and small engine projects. The knowledge gained through these traditions is priceless.
With County support, the Routt County Fair is organized by the Routt County Fair Advisory Board, a nine-member volunteer board appointed by the County Commissioners. While this board works closely with the County Commissioners, it is the board members who spend countless volunteer hours to produce the annual Routt County Fair for the enjoyment of locals and visitors alike. They truly deserve our thanks for a job well done!
We encourage you to take some time to participate in, appreciate, and enjoy the 108th Annual Routt County Fair.
