San Luis Valley Fair

The San Luis Valley Fair started in 1902. It is a local event for both youth and adults. The fair offers a variety of events and shows, from cake decorating to horse and livestock shows.

The San Luis Valley Fair is run by a dedicated group of volunteers.

Operating as usual


Kentucky 4-H'er Lori pledged her hands to larger service over the weekend by organizing the collection of 300+ handmade Valentine's Day cards from 4-H'ers to deliver to the local veteran's center and nursing homes, bringing smiles to members of her community! #TrueLeaders #Opportunity4All

Calling Sheep, Goat and Swine Kids!

Please take note that weigh in is May 8th (8 am - 11 am) NOT May 1st.

[02/06/21]   Beef Weigh In is from 8:00-11:00 today!! See yiu soon!!

[02/03/21]   Attention All Beef Kids

The extension office is closed this week.

You should be registered and paid by today, however, we have been made aware of some issues, and with the extension office closed we don’t have a great way to remedy them at the moment.

If you’re having issues with registration or payment, please bring your payment to weigh in! The office will work on fixing the issues, but payment needs to be made at weigh in.

Virtual Leadership Conference Opportunity

This event is for 4-H members 14-18 years old (as of December 30, 2020). 4-H leaders who would normally act as chaperones are also welcome to attend. Enrollment in 4-H and Registration is required. This is a FREE event this year! The State 4-H Senate and State Shooting Sports Ambassadors have some great virtual workshops lined up.


The generosity of nearly 600 thoughtful supporters and one matching donor family are helping 4-H reach more kids. These contributions to our end-of-year campaign go directly to providing meaningful opportunities that help young people thrive despite their circumstances. 2020 was a rough year, but we are so grateful to our 4-H donors, alumni and friends who gave kids a reason to hope for a brighter future. #Opportunity4All

Mark your calendars! Steer weigh-in is February 6th, 2021.

[12/31/20]   As we close out 2020 we are thankful for the opportunities our children were given to participate in 4-H and FFA. We are looking forward to a great 2021! The San Luis Valley Fair is scheduled for August 7-14 2021. Have a safe and happy new year!

[09/30/20]   Calling all livestock kids! Please make sure you get your thank you notes to your buyers and get your papers back to the 4-H office! We would love to pay you!
