Due to Covid-19, the LC Fair Dairy Show will be one day only, Sat., Aug,. 1st at the Longhorn outdoor arena at The Ranch.


IMPORTANT REMINDERS - If you are feeling sick, ill, have a temperature, or are experiencing any of the signs of COVID-19 DO NOT COME to the fairgrounds. Additionally, if you have been around someone in the last 14 days who has or is suspected to have COVID-19, do not come to the fairgrounds. 

  • Face Masks - ALL participants, members, volunteers and their families MUST wear face masks at all times unless directed by a show official while showing.
  • 6' social distancing between family groups must be followed, only 1 guardian and/or adult per contestant will be permitted.

Lastly, we realize the fair experience will be different this year.  A large number of people, including staff and volunteers at both Larimer County and CSU, have worked very hard to be able to bring you this Fair under the current health orders.  We heard your feedback that as many "live" competitions as possible were preferred and we are proud of what we are able to offer given the circumstances.  We hope you are too!  Please bring your positive attitude and patience to Fair this year as we are all trying something new and different, and always remember the 4-H Code of Conduct that guides us.  We look forward to seeing you,

Thank you,
Your 2020 County Fair team at CSU Extension and The Ranch
