Welcome to the Carbon County Fair Web Site! The theme for our 97th  annual Fair is "Grow It, Sew It, Show It!”  Our dates this year are July 28, through August 14th.  The Carbon County Fair is one of the most highly anticipated events of the summer in Carbon County. Fair Week includes Mud Volleyball, Hell on Wheels Rodeo, Junior Livestock Shows, Team Roping, a Ranch Rodeo, Mutton Bustin’, Dummy Roping, Food, Fun, and the week caps off with the Junior Livestock Sale.  Saturday is the Demolition Derby, which is always a packed house!  Guadagno& Sons Amusements will be here with their amazing rides again August 10-14!   We pack as much as we can into one week! The Carbon County Fair is our chance to showcase the  youngest members of Carbon County, Wyoming, through their 4-H and FFA Projects. These kids rock!  Please note:  This is Carbon County, Wyoming, in Rawlins, Wyoming!

 Some events we are excited about 2023... We are hoping to book another concertWednesday, August 2nd, 2023 starting at 7:00 p.m.  This is produced in cooperation with HF Sinclair, and the Carbon County Visitor's Council.   Tickets will be available  at Eventbrite.com We are currently in the planning stages of the rodeo which will be  Thursday, August 3, 2023.  Tickets for that event are also available at Evenbrite.com. The Junior LIvestock Sale Buyer's Luncheon will be at noon on Friday, August 4th, and the Junior LIvestock Sale is slated to start at 1:00 p.m. that day. This is a great way to purchase some quality animals to fill your freezer!  The Demolition Derby will happen on Saturday, August 5th at 5:00 p.m.  This is always a great afternoon, and fills the grandstands!  Ticket sales for the Derby will go on sale July 1, 2023, at Eventbrite.com.  Guadagno and Sons Amusements will be pulling into town August 7, and their great carnival will be open August 10-14. This was a great event last year, and we are so happy to have them back!
