The first Arapahoe County Fair was held in 1906, along the banks of the South Platte River within present day Littleton. The Fair is one of Arapahoe County’s longest standing community traditions. The County Fair has traveled to various locations, including Deer Trail, Byers, Englewood and Littleton. The current location of the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds was commemorated in July 2006, marking the 100th anniversary of the Fair.

Welcome to your Arapahoe County Fair! The Fair continues to showcase the County’s agricultural and Western heritage through 4-H programming, traditional agricultural activities and entertainment. For the price of your admission you can also enjoy carnival rides, motor sports, canine entertainment, a petting farm and numerous other activities. Don’t forget to shop at the food vendors, or enjoy a beer from one of our beer tents. Be sure to check the daily schedule for the full lineup of activities and shows each day.

We can’t wait to get back to good ol fashioned FUN in 2024. See you at the Fair!
