Join your friends and neighbors at the 74th annual Eagle County Fair & Rodeo, July 24 – 27, at the Eagle County Fairgrounds. Enjoy 4-H shows, livestock, food vendors, exhibits and contests, as well as the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) Rodeo, Junior Livestock Auction and Buckin' Brewfest. The event celebrates the area’s western heritage and youth education in a fun, family setting. 

In lieu of the traditional carnival, the 2013 Eagle County Fair & Rodeo will offer a Wild West Adventure Zone. Family activities will include inflatable bouncers, bungee trampoline, water spheres, pony rides, face painting, kid’s crafts and more.

Returning to for its third year is the Texaco Country Showdown, set for July 24 and 25 and hosted by KSKE - Ski Country radio. The action takes place from 5:30 to 7 p.m., before the rodeo. Twelve competitors will take the stage on Wednesday evening and judges will invite the top five to perform on Thursday evening. The contest winner will advance to the state finals, scheduled for Labor Day weekend at the annual Copper Country festival in Copper Mountain.

The PRCA-sanctioned rodeo begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and will feature approximately 30 national finals rodeo competitors including world-champion bareback riders, barrel racers and bull riders. The 4-H Freedom Riders will kick off the rodeo each night, followed by rodeo events and specialty acts. 

Rodeo tickets can be purchased online  at the gate beginning at 5 p.m. each night. Free parking is available west of the fairgrounds, with free shuttle transportation available to the rodeo grounds.
