Projects underway at fairgrounds
The Garfield County Fairgrounds is under construction to implement new improvements in the coming weeks. Now through mid-July, work is taking place to create a new entrance from Railroad Avenue at the northeast corner of the fairgrounds, re-center the announcer's booth in the outdoor arena, and to remodel the South Hall. Staff is working hard to minimize any potential impacts from the work, and is excited to bring an improved fairground experience to the community.
