Welcome to the 102nd Middle Park Fair & Rodeo
Welcome to the 102nd Middle Park Fair & Rodeo! We are looking forward to celebrating this year’s Fair & Rodeo with each one of you. As we continue our western heritage into this next century, we are proud to provide a taste of the past and present each year through a variety of events and shows. If it is any indication of the way things are improving with 4-H attendance numbers on theincline, it shows that our youth are more aware of a culture that has provided us with
so much in the past that is ever so present today!
I would like to ask you to take notice of all our youth and their projects whether it be a display in the exhibit hall or one of the many animals in the livestock classes. They have worked hard to provide the best they can to show you and everyone else what our heritage can produce. These young men and women come from this great area known as Middle Park, which includes Grand and Summit Counties.
I would like to personally thank my hardworking Fair Board, the County Commissioners from both Grand and Summit for their continued support, the extension office staff, all of our sponsors who have consistently donated so much to make these events happen; without them, there would be no fair. Thank you to the hard work of all our superintendents who make things happen throughout fair week. And to all our exhibitors and 4-H members, thank you for making the time to do the work and doing an excellent job of ensuring our western heritage continues on for generations.
Sit back, check out all of our events and shows, have fun, and enjoy all that makes us Middle Park!
