Temporary hold on new event bookings at the fairgrounds
Garfield County is temporarily unable to book new events at the fairgrounds due to a current staffing shortage. The county is diligently working toward filling open positions and will soon be offering events again at the fairgrounds. Events that have already been reserved are not affected by the temporary hold on new bookings. Staff is looking forward to hosting all the community’s fairgrounds events in the near future. We appreciate your patience.

Our property features 140 tongue-and-groove pine stalls with rubber mats. Each stall barn has lights, electric outlets, and fans. The new construction also includes a 110′ x 120′ covered warmup arena and another overhead garage door which connects the new covered arena to the old indoor arena. Feel free to stop in and see our new additions and upgrades, or call the fairgrounds office at (970) 625-2514 to schedule an event.
