WELD COUNTY, CO — Despite the challenges presented by COVID-19, the Weld County Board of Commissioners is proud to announce that the 102nd Weld County Fair will be held this summer – albeit a bit differently than ever before.
“The board felt it was imperative, as the number one agricultural county in the state, that we find a way to hold the fair for the youth who have worked hard preparing the projects for this event,” said Commissioner Chair Mike Freeman.
This year, the fair will be open to exhibitors and their families so as to allow for the completion of 4-H and FFA projects. General public and vendors will not be able to attend this year nor will there be open class exhibits.
“We are disappointed that circumstances don’t allow for our usual celebration of the fair this year,” said Commissioner Barbara Kirkmeyer, coordinator for the Extension Department. “However, we are committed to the young people, who are the future leaders in agriculture in this county and want to make sure they have a chance to compete.”
Dates of the Weld County Fair remain the same – July 24 through August 3. Several livestock shows will be livestreamed online via Barn Media. Visit https://livestream.com/barnmedia/2020wcf to participate.
Shows are as follows:
- Market & Breeding Goat Show – Wednesday, July 29 at 9:00 a.m.
- Dairy Cattle Show – Thursday, July 30 at 8:00 a.m.
- Market & Breeding Sheep Show – Thursday, July 30 at 9:00 a.m.

- Breeding Beef Show – Friday, July 31 at 1:00 p.m.
- Market & Breeding Swine Show – Saturday, August 1 at 8:00 a.m.
“The Weld County Fair remains a traditional event showcasing Weld County’s agricultural roots and heritage,” said Freeman. “We’re not letting COVID-19 take this tradition away.”
