Entertainment, Attractions & Food

This year, the Colorado State Fair is bringing in some of the best food and entertainment that we guarantee will be something you won’t want to miss. Just check out the concert line up alone which includes ZZTop, Hunter Hayes, Skillet, Gary Allen and Gabriel Iglesias. Not only are the concerts worthwhile, but so are the rodeos that will be taking place just about every night, the monster truck show and demolition derby, and the free attractions that include; the state fair museum, sea lion splash, stilt circus, fables of the west, pig races, antique tractors and so much more!

Carnival Rides & More

Guests of the fair will be able to see many different livestock and animals, small animals, fine arts and much more! There will be food and wine available for purchase (21 and up).  However, one of the most important aspects of a carnival is the rides! So, what kinds of rides will be onsite?  Arctic Blast, Fireball, Crazy Dance, Hi-Roller, Sky Fire, Starship, Super Shot, Spin Out, and of course the legendary Century Wheel, among many many others. 


If fair rides, events, and attractions aren’t enough to pull you in, we aren’t sure what will! Well, maybe the great ticket prices will seal the deal for you. Tickets to the fair are extremely affordable for all ages. Adult admission (ages 13 & older) is $10 at the gate. Kids between the ages of 5-12 will cost $7, and children 4 and under are admitted for free (must be accompanied by an adult).
