110th Wyoming State Fair: Premier summer event crowns winners
The Wyoming State Fair (WSF) celebrated its 110th year in Douglas Aug. 16-20. Families and friends gathered to watch exhibitors in 4-H, FFA and open categories from all over the state compete with top-notch livestock and static exhibits, enjoy delicious fair food, shop a variety of vendors, view nightly entertainment and to celebrate Wyoming agriculture.
Livestock shows varied from horses and rabbits to goats, sheep, pigs, chickens and cattle. Entertainment included a carnival, Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Rodeo, demolition derby, a Morgan Evans concert, Nerveless Nocks, The Pirate’s Parrot Show and the Danger Magik Show, among others. There was something for everyone to enjoy.
WSF General Manager Courtny Conkle recalls this year’s fair as a 110th accomplishment.
“The 110th WSF was a great success. We owe a tremendous amount of gratitude to everyone who works diligently to make the WSF the premier event of summer and to our exhibitors choosing to spend the week with us,” says Conkle. “We are already counting the days down to next year’s fair which will take place Aug. 15-19.”
