The El Paso County Fair Queen Committee would like to thank our 2022 Queen, Makena Norton for an amazing year. 

“My favorite fair memory was my first year I qualified for round robin, because I got the chance to experience all the different projects and got to meet all their animals as well! It was also that year that my best friend and I got to represent horse project together which made it 10x better!”
