Gold: Colorado State Fair

101 Beulah Ave. | 719.561.8484

Since Colorado became a state in 1876, the State Fair has played a role in entertainment for up to a half-million people who visit the expo from throughout Colorado each summer. There are unique carnival foods such as large turkey legs, deep-fried Oreos, peanut butter and cheesecake. There isn’t a section on the fairgrounds that doesn’t have something for anyone of any age group. Carnival rides light up the skies at night, music pumps through the avenues and the various shows provide entertainment to anyone at the event.
