[06/13/20]   Thank you for all of your interest in this year’s fair. We are so sad to inform you that there will be no vendors onsite this year. We look forward to having all of our vendors back for the 2021 fair! We will post schedules for this year’s fair as they become available.

[05/22/20]   Update: the SLV Fair is NOT cancelled. It will be held August 1-8, 2020. We are working on a schedule and will post it soon!

[04/15/20]   We are happy to announce that the 2020 fair theme is Every Fair Has a Story! Please look for an email from the CSU Extension Office for information regarding registering your lambs, goats and pigs for the fair. We are not able to schedule a weigh in at this time so it is imperative that you register your animal in this alternative way. If you have any questions please call Maxine at the extension office or email Nicole at [email protected]. We look forward to seeing you at the 2020 fair!

[03/28/20]   UPDATE!!! In trying to follow with CSU’s guidelines, we will have to postpone the May 2nd weigh-in to a later date. The fair board will have its regularly scheduled meeting via video chat on April 13th to decide on a new date for weigh-in. We are so excited for the 2020 fair!!

[03/27/20]   The San Luis Valley Fair Board conducted an emergency meeting on March 26,2020. They decided to reinstate the weigh-in and tagging for goats, sheep and pigs that was cancelled due to COVID-19. They are currently in a holding pattern due to COVID-19, but feel they can make a better decision about this event at their regularly scheduled board meeting on April 13, 2020. Please know that they will do everything in their power to keep you and your family well during this critical time. Fair is also scheduled for August 1 - 8 2020. If you have any questions please contact a fair board member.
