I have the privilege of serving as the 2017 Park County Fair Queen and this year has grown my passion for the sport of rodeo, 4-H, our community, and most importantly, our fair! Being a fair queen means early mornings and late nights, dirty boots and glitzy shirts, shows and parades, and months of preparation all leading to one thing… county fair! It’s the most wonderful time of the year and I cannot wait to share it with you.
Come one, come all!
Join me for the 2017 Park County Fair and experience “The Finest of the Land” at 10,000 feet. As Park County Fair Queen, I would like to invite each and every one of you to join me for a week of fun – youngsters and old folks, greenhorns and seasoned hands, cowboys and cowgirls alike. There’s so many different activities for everyone to enjoy, so bring the whole family down to the fairgrounds July 12-16, 2017.
We offer many different events and activities for all ages throughout the week. At Park County Fair, you will experience 4-H livestock, small animal, dog, and horse shows as well as our Junior Livestock Auction. See yak shows for the first time this year. View General 4-H Projects in rocketry, cake decorating, shooting sports, and more. Horsemen and women young and old are invited to participate in our Open Gymkhana. Kids can enjoy special contests such as mutton bustin’ or our Catch-A- programs. Families are welcomed out for our free movie night. Folks of all ages can enter our open competitions in culinary arts and crafting. Young ladies from Park County and surrounding counties can compete for the title of 2018 Park County Fair Royalty Court. Everyone can enjoy rodeo events, specialty acts, vendors and spectacular food, live music with lots of dancing, chuck wagon cooking demonstrations, and a midway with carnival rides. I hope to see you in the stands during our events such as the crowning of our 2018 Park County Royalty, riding the ferris wheel on the midway, supporting 4-H in our auction, or dancing the night away to one of our amazing live bands.
Park County Fair is truly the “Finest of the Land” and is a fantastic event to put on your summer calendar. I look forward to seeing y’all at the Park County Fair on July 12-16!
