2021 Arapahoe County Fair

Heads up 4-H Families! The time to enter your projects for the 2021 Fair is NOW! FairEntry opened for entries on 6/1/21. FairEntry will be open for 4-H Families through 6/18 with no late fee. Entries will still be accepted through 6/25 with a $25 late fee per exhibitor. Absolutely NO entries will be accepted after 6/25 for any reason! Get your entries in sooner rather than later!

Once you have submitted your entries, you must confirm that they were received with Jean. You can email her at to confirm your entries. We don't want anyone to miss out because they thought they completed all the steps and didn't really get them all done.

4-H Exhibitor Wristbands and Other Tickets

Jean will be organizing the green wristbands for the 4-H Exhibitors, just like in years past. These are good for admission to the Fair and do NOT include the carnival. The wristbands will be given out at exhibit check-ins.

If you wish to order general Fair admission tickets (includes carnival rides), parent/guardian season passes or parking passes, you may now do that by clicking here.
Please note that the fairgrounds staff needs to do a little tweaking on this page as they have the price listed wrong on the parking passes. They have been emailed about it, so hopefully they will get it fixed soon.

Attention FCS and General 4-H Families!

Please know that we are planning for plan A where the FCS and General judging will take place in-person with safety protocols that follow Tri-County Health requirements. This is exciting news for us as we were unable to do in-person last year and had to turn to virtual. I know that the judges are looking forward to getting back to our county. Please make sure that you are working on your projects and not waiting until the last minute to complete before fair. You will need to make sure and get your entries submitted on Fair Entry!
