Boulder County Fair- Laura Boldt, Fair Manager

Update 5/29/20

To our Junior Fair exhibitors, the public entertainment portion of the Boulder County Fair is cancelled, however, your work and projects are very important to us.  Boulder County  hopes to support a “modified” fair that will focus on the important 4-H activities only, including market sale, while ensuring the safety and health of the exhibitors, families, judges and support volunteers.  The Fair Board, staff and superintendents along with Boulder County Extension will work to put together plans to exhibit your  projects virtually and in a limited capacity on the fairgrounds.  Please stay tuned for further updates regarding competitions during the Fair.

From the Fairgrounds:

Update 6/12/2020

On Behalf of the Boulder County Fairgrounds – Scheduling Office

Fairground Camping Reservations. We are still in discussion in preparation for the modified 4-H Fair Activity. Taking reservations for camping at the Fair is on hold until further notice. When our final plans are approved, we will determine if camping will be an option.

Update 5/29/20

The Boulder County Fairgrounds scheduling office has been given guidance from Boulder County Officials to keep the Boulder County Fairgrounds closed through July 31, 2020.

This means no events or meetings will take place through the month of July.

1. The dump station at the campground. This will be open from 8am-4pm daily except for some holidays.

2. The public riding arena will be open from dawn to dusk effective June 1st. Please use social distancing practices while using arena.  The gates will not be sanitized after each use so take precautions.

3. The Farmers Market has been deemed essential business, so will operate with social distancing/limitation procedures in place.

Keeping ahead of COVID-19

This rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) has imposed an unsettling, fluid situation upon our community and its businesses. While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal.
