75 Years of Kids, Critters & Cowboys!

We are delighted to welcome you to the 2023 La Plata County Fair!

This year’s theme, “75 years of Kids, Critters and Cowboys” is a look at the County’s rich traditions which bind residents to their past and connect them to their future. The Fair is a great opportunity for community members to gather together and honor the hard work of our talented residents who grow, raise, make, create, and share what they do each year.

The La Plata County Fair is a showcase of the County’s abundance and spirit of generosity, and we encourage you to enjoy the great talent, great music, good eats and exciting entertainment with your family and friends.

Rodeo has deep roots in Durango. The sport rose from the practices of working cattle herders in Spain and Mexico, who brought the friendly competition to the Four Corners region. True Western Roundup in Durango tests the skills and mettle of cowboys and cowgirls from southwest Colorado and beyond. Learn more!
