Carbon County, Rawlins, Wyoming County Fair!

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 29, through August 14th.  The Carbon County Fair is  the most highly anticipated event of the summer in Carbon County. Fair Week includes a PRCA Rodeo, Aaron Watson Concert, 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 a short amount of time!   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!  

Some events we are excited about 2023...   A PRCA Rodeo will once again be taking place in Rawlins!  Date for the Rodeo is Wednesday, August 2, 2023.  Come watch some of the top cowboys and cowgirls in the Rocky Mountain Region compete in both Rough Stock and Timed Events.  Mutton Bustin' will also take place that night.  If you have a little Mutton Buster, they can sign up the night of the rodeo down at the arena. Tickets are available  at Eventbrite.com.  On Thursday, August 3rd is the Aaron Watson Concert!  We are fortunate to have a great partnership with HF Sinclair, and the Carbon County Visitor's Council to bring a concert of this type to the Carbon County Fair!  Opening for Aaron will be Brandon Jones, out of Denver, CO.  Tickets are available at Eventbrite.com.  This is going to be a memory making night under the Wyoming Summer Night Sky!  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 June 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!  

If you are traveling, and need to overnight your four legged equine friends, please call the Fair Office at 307-328-7811. We’ll leave the light on for you!  We have a new Horse Barn for the equine travelers that is quite a nice place to overnight your horse!  They will thank you for it!  If you are pulling a trailer, use the 525  Harshman Street entrance, near the corner of Spruce Street and Harshman.  Don't listen to Google Maps and take the Rodeo Street Exit- the corners are a little tight for a large trailer.   It's $20 per night per horse, and if you would like to plug in your trailer, that is $20 also.  You can also reach us via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
