Kid’s Rodeo POSTPONED Until August 14, 2016 @ Noon

The Archuleta County Fair Board has postponed the 2016 Kid’s Rodeo originally scheduled for noon on Sunday, August 7, to noon on Sunday, August 14. The rodeo grounds have subpar conditions for the rodeo with the Pagosa Springs area receiving a large amount of rain recently and the Fair Board decided to delay the rodeo one week for the safety of children and animals.

All registration and rodeo procedures will remain the same as documented on this page. See you on Sunday, August 14 at noon!


Get your registration form on our website under Kid’s Rodeo Entry Form or pick one up at the CSU Extension Office. Entries may be mailed by July 25th or dropped off at the CSU Extension Office, PO Box 370 (344 Highway 84), Pagosa Springs, CO 81147.

All entries must be received by 11 AM on Sunday of Fair,  and the rodeo begins at 12 pm.
