For 71 years, generations of families, friends and neighbors have come together to showcase their animals, garden products and other creations, and compete with others for ribbons and awards. It is a time for family groups and friends to enjoy the great talent, great music, good eats and exciting entertainment the Fair offers each year.
The La Plata County Fair has always been a showcase of our Country's best, from scrumptious home-grown and home-made foods, to other wares and crafts created by seasoned participants and children alike. The newest generation of future farmers and ranchers proudly present the animals they've raised and display their finest creations. And while animal husbandry and farming are the focus of 4-H, young people also display their 4-H projects in such fields as modern rocketry, small engines and electricity, entomology global citizenry and wildlife conservation.
