The Archuleta County Fair is celebrating its 69th year in 2020.
The mission of the Archuleta County Fair is to unite our community by preserving our history through building memories, encouraging cooperation, creating learning opportunities, providing entertainment, as well as developing healthy competition for exhibitors of Archuleta County enrolled in 4-H and open class competitors from any geographical area of the world.
The Fair represents the way of life for the citizens of Archuleta County. The ranching families are the original lifeblood of this region: they grow hay, run cattle, breed and train horses, grow their own vegetables, raise chickens, sheep, and goats, and care for their beloved working dogs. They take pride in the education of honing their baking, quilting, food preserving, and fine arts skills. The townspeople have enriched the area culturally, ensured better education, developed tourism, and encouraged economic development. The Fair is truly a time to unite our community.
When you support the Fair, you're supporting the families of Archuleta County. You're helping to continue the traditional values of teaching children self-reliance, self-respect, and instilling the honor of learning to care for the land and the animals that keep our families fed and healthy.
The Fair needs your support to continue. Follow the donation link at the top of the page or contact the Fair Manager to make your pledge/donation or to discuss the best method of helping continue this important tradition.
