Enterprise Newsletter • Join in the 2018 Wyoming State Fair festivities
The Wyoming State Fair, from the carnival to the show rings and grandstand events, is a long-held Douglas and Wyoming tradition. For over 100 years the event has been held in Douglas. We encourage the community's residents to attend the fair, participate in the festivities and enjoy this year's Wyoming State Fair and Rodeo.

Head to the fairway for the Wyoming State Fair
The 2018 Wyoming State Fair is officially scheduled for Aug. 15-18. Several events, like the Kiddie Parade, a sheep wagon show and an art show, have been planned for the days leading up to the fair. Attendees are encouraged to watch our Facebook page calendar. We're adding events as we hear about them.

Visit the Railroad Museum & Visitor Center
Coming to Douglas for the 2018 Wyoming State Fair and Rodeo, or other events? Be sure to stop by and see the new Railroad Museum in Douglas' historic train depot. The depot is also home to Douglas' visitor center.

Staff at The Enterprise and the Visitor Center have been hard at work updating exhibits in an effort to preserve and protect Douglas' railroad history and heritage.

If you have a story relating to Douglas' railroad history, the staff at the Museum would appreciate hearing it. Stop by for a visit and share what you know about the historic building. Those in charge of the museum are committed to ensuring that the exhibits keep growing and improving. Hearing true-to-life stories about families who arrived in the area via the Depot, or have a personal connection, go far in helping them reach that goal.
Don't miss the collection of historic rail cars surrounding the Depot. The Railroad Museum is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday during the summer months.
Kiddie Parade Aug. 11 at the State Fairgrounds
Past participants in the Wyoming State Fair Kiddie Parade have arrived driving space ships, leading goats and even pulling a cage holding Jimmy the Rabbit. We can't wait to see what 2018 brings to the event!

The 2018 Kiddie Parade is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 11. Registration is from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Brownfield entrance to the Wyoming State Fairgrounds. The parade, sure to be full of community fun and laughter, begins at 10 a.m.
Parade participants will wind their way through the grounds, ending at the sheep wagon show. The Wyoming Pioneer Association will be waiting at the parade's end, ready to serve up cool drinks and a hot dog picnic. Each parade participant will receive a prize and a ribbon.

This year's parade theme is "That's WY." Entries can match the theme, but that isn't required.
March on down to the 2018 State Fair Parade
