Let’s get back to good ol’ fashioned FUN!

Tickets on sale May 20 for the 2021 Arapahoe County Fair, July 22-25, 2021

With summer around the corner and having made big strides in vaccination rates and pandemic recovery, Arapahoe County is thrilled to announce the return of the 115th annual Arapahoe County Fair, July 22-25, 2021.

The Arapahoe County Fair is a beloved community tradition that showcases the County’s agricultural and Western heritage through 4-H programming, traditional agricultural activities, and tons of entertainment. It is an incredible value for families looking for a full day of laughter and good wholesome fun.

At just $15 per ticket, and with COVID protocols in place, it’s the best deal in town for a safe, family-friendly outing this summer. It’s also one of the first county fairs in Colorado to kick off fair season. “We know how hard this past year has been and how eager we all are to get back to fun activities, and we are doing everything we can to plan for a ‘safe, but normal’ Fair,” says Nancy Jackson, Chair of the Board of County Commissioners. “We will continue to monitor COVID restrictions, but we are beyond excited to get back in the saddle—safely—and the show must go on.”

Included in the price of Fair admission: unlimited carnival rides, rodeos, fireworks, main stage concerts, tractor pulls, Dock Dogs, mutton bustin’, public competitions, 4-H livestock shows, and numerous other activities. Food, beverages and vendors will be abundant throughout the Fairgrounds.

In addition, our craft brew festival—now called Pours on the Plains—is back by popular demand and will be held on Friday evening, July 23. This separate ticketed event will feature more than a dozen Colorado breweries and is guaranteed to be a hoppin’ time.

So let’s get back to FUN, and we’ll see you at the FAIR!
