The Colorado State Fair announced today that a limited version of the State Fair will go on, with modifications to meet public health guidelines, scheduled for August 28-September 7.
The event will be called the “2020 Colorado State Fair Reimagined.”
Attendance at the fair will be dramatically limited compared to a normal year, said Scott Stoller, General Manager for the Colorado State Fair.
Whereas the fair normally sees 20,000-60,000 attendees per day, current guidelines for outdoor events limit crowd sizes to 175 people in large gathering areas.
That crowd limit means there will not be any large concerts or stage events. Because of that, Stoller said, admissions will be free to the public.
Specific details on free tickets and total capacity estimates have not yet been provided. Tickets previously purchased for the 2020 fair can be applied to the 2021 event, or in some cases refunded, according to the fair website.
