It’s almost summer and that means the Arapahoe County Fair is just around the corner, July 26 - 29 at the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds and Events Center in Aurora.

It’s a super bargain with pre-sale online admission tickets only $10 per person. Tickets include unlimited carnival rides, rodeos and concerts on the main stage, fireworks, 4-H shows, tractor pulls, tasty food and a petting farm to name a few.

A summer tradition since 1906, the Arapahoe County Fair is a time to celebrate our heritage. See rabbits, pigs and poultry in the east wing and horses, cattle, llamas, alpacas, goats and sheep in the livestock pavilion.

Each year, you can enjoy returning crowd favorites plus new events and activities.

New this year is the high-flying Dueling Dogs, where dogs run, jump, swim and retrieve a buoy in a race against one another. If shopping is more your style, peruse more than 40 vendors or check out the new Gypsy Farmhouse Market, a collection of local vendors selling vintage items and wares.

Fairgoers 21 and older can purchase tickets for the fifth annual Craft Brew Festival July 27 for $20 per person and features local brewers, food and live music. For the first time, a Home Brew competition will be held July 28 to determine the best-tasting beer from locals who have a passion for this popular hobby.

Residents of all counties are invited to enter their handmade and homegrown treasures in the Open Class Competition for a chance to win ribbons and cash prizes. Fairgoers also can marvel at and bid on quality market animals that 4-H youth work diligently to raise at the Youth Livestock Auction July 28.
