  • Klayton Costanzo – President

Welcome to the 84th Garfield County Fair & Rodeo

We are excited to be back and look forward to presenting the 2022 Garfield County Fair and Rodeo. The board along with the help of the BOCC and county staff have worked diligently to implement and observe ever changing COVID-19 protocols. This is to ensure the safety and wellness of our beloved guests. We appreciate the continued support of our sponsors, participants, and patrons while we work through this together. We are glad after last year to back on track in order to bring the community an event all can enjoy and a cause to rally around. We’ve missed the normalcy and look forward to a barn full of 4-H animals, the buzz of excitement that comes with a rodeo and a concert with friends. The Board, myself and all that have put so much into this look forward to seeing you there. – President Klayton Costanzo

It is with great pleasure that I welcome everyone to our Garfield County Fair. Your Fair Board has been working to bring you a great 2022 Fair.

2022 Fair. – Levy Burris
