Long-standing success, even in crisis: Wyoming State Fair is huge success despite worldwide pandemic
For 108 years, the Wyoming State Fair (WSF) has been a successful event, bringing together families and friends to celebrate their passion and devotion for the state’s agriculture industry.
This year, in the midst of a global pandemic, the state’s premier summer event offered delicious fried food, a variety of diverse vendors, sparkling carnival lights and barns full of competitive livestock and hard-working youth. As one of three fairs held across the entire nation, the 2020 Wyoming State Fair went off without a hitch.
“The fair was really a win for everyone involved. I had so many people come up and thank me for having the fair this year, and I didn’t realize how much people needed us to put it on,” said WSF Manager Courtny Conkle. “It was a great way to bring the ag community together, and we feel really blessed to have had the opportunity to have the fair this year.”
