Having grown up in Salina, KS where the Tri-Rivers Fair and Rodeo happens every August, I was surprised to learn that Denver has never had a county fair. Well, that’s all about to change this year. The Denver County Fair will take place July 28 – 31 at the National Western Complex. Go to denvercountyfair.org to learn more.
Looks like a lot of fun for both kids and adults. There will be a typical petting zoo, funnel cakes and a Fine Art Pavilion just to name a few. I wonder if they’ll have rabbits in cages? I always loved petting rabbits through the cage wires where little tuffs of fur would poke out. I also remember bringing home a free kitten from the fair one year. I can guarantee that won’t happen.
Check out the website to see if there’s a category you want to enter to show off your best. I won a couple of blue ribbons back in the day but I doubt I’ll be entering anything this year. I’ll give those who don’t have my box full of ribbons a chance to collect some of their own.
Maybe I’ll see you there. I’ll be standing near the funnel cake booth.
