Join Us for the Denver County Fair

There’s something for everyone at the second annual Denver County Fair, August 10-12, at the National Western Complex.

You know something special’s going on when county fairs around the country call Denver to find out how to bring their events into the 21st century.

That’s what’s happening with the Denver County Fair.

This one-of-a-kind county fair is a little bit urban, a little bit country and a lot of everything else. Plan on more than 275 events on 13 stages in 3 days!

Just think…a fair that’s entirely indoors, carnival and all. In addition to all of the pavilions the fair featured last year, a Geek Pavilion will be part of the fun at this year’s event.

Other new offerings at the fair include more local food vendors, a food truck roundup, a Colorado Beer Garden, more live competitions, a Freak Show featuring the Enigma, and a Zombie Dance party.

Sunday is Viva Denver Day and there will be Latino-themed events throughout. It begins with Andrew Novick’s X-Treme Breakfast Burritos and includes pinata making stations, mariachi bands, a hot pepper eating contest, a Chihuahua event and much more.

There’s plenty of traditional fair fun, too. There are flower and vegetable competitions, square dancing, an expanded Animal Pavilion (quadrupled in size), a new Kids Pavilion and a 4-H stage. You’ll enjoy more new food this year, like red velvet funnel cakes and deep-fried Twinkies.

I hope you’ll stop by the booth in the Farm & Garden Pavilion, say “hi” and pick up some free garden goodies. Just like last year, we’ll be promoting our local Plant a Row for the Hungry effort and encouraging gardeners throughout the metro area to join us.

On Friday at 4:00, Jane Shellenberger will present her program on Growing Organic Vegetables in the West at the Farm & Garden Pavilion stage. Then she’ll stop by our booth to sign her new book “Organic Gardener’s Companion: Growing Vegetables in the West.” I hope you’ll join us for this special event…and three days of fantastic fair fun!
