Fair Board

Meetings held every 2nd Tuesday at the Fairplay Community Center 7:00pm

Catch-an-animal program:
Park County Fair
How can your youth participate?  It’s easy!  Sign up at the Park County Fair on Sunday morning and get your running shoes on, because the youth that catches the sheep are the ones that are awarded “Catch-An-Animal”.  You will participate in the 2017-2018 4-H livestock market program.  The Park County Livestock Committee is offering Park County youth an opportunity to:  Catch and animal at the 2017 fair; raise a sheep or a pig in the spring of 2018 and then sell it at the Jr. Livestock Auction at the 2018 fair.  Sign up early.
