Food, beverages and vendors will be abundant throughout the Fairgrounds. 

In addition, our craft brew festival, Pours on the Plains, is back by popular demand and will be held on Friday evening, July 29. This separate ticketed event costs $25 per person and will feature 14+ Colorado breweries and is guaranteed to be a hoppin’ good time.
