Welcome back to fun! We are excited to be back in the saddle and planning the 2021 Arapahoe County Fair. As always, we need volunteers to make this event a success. Volunteers receive a T-shirt, free parking and free admission to the Fair (excluding carnival) on the day(s) of their shift(s).
Arapahoe County follows public health orders and guidance provided by the Tri-County Health Department and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. The County will follow any COVID-19 protocols that are current at the time of the Fair.
At minimum, volunteers will be asked to frequently wash hands or apply hand sanitizer (available throughout the Fairgrounds) and stay home if not feeling well.
We will update this website if there are additional COVID-19 protocols or restrictions in place during the Fair.
Being vaccinated prior to volunteering at the Fair greatly reduces your risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19.
