The tents have been put up for some good, old-fashioned fun at the Archuleta County Fair.
Fair activities kick off today and run through Sunday.
If you are a newcomer to the area, a visit to the county fair is the single best way to learn about what has made this community strong and what makes it tick today.
If you’ve lived here longer, then a visit to the county fair is an opportunity to renew friendships after a busy summer.
There might be no other event during the year in the county that has as much tradition attached to it as our county fair.
There will be plenty of good, old-fashioned fun during the fair, including Wild Man Phil in the education tent, Parelli lectures and games, vendors, contests, fiber festival, a beer garden, 4-H dog shows, entertainment by comedic hypnotist Rusty Z, boxing matches and much more.
The fair gives us all a chance to celebrate ourselves, our community and the things that make Archuleta County great.
Enjoy throwing a game of horseshoes, cooling off with some homemade ice cream and indulging in delicious home-baked goods.
