Phillips County Fair

Wednesday, Jul 24, 2019 at 9:00am

Phillips County Fairgrounds
22505 US Highway 385
Holyoke, CO 80734

This year's theme is "Bushels of Fun at the Phillips County Fair". The County Fair is a showplace for the creative skills of people of all ages, an exhibit of our agricultural resources and a place to exchange ideas and make memories.  Exciting changes are happening to the fairgrounds and the fair, but there are still three important factors that are pinnacle to the success of the County Fair -Family, Friends and Community.  May we always come together to help each other out, cheer each other on, and just enjoy being together.  A community like ours is what defines success.  Thank you to the County Commissioners, Harlan Stern, Don Lock and Terry Hofmeister for their work in improving the fairgrounds and supporting the fair.  Special thanks to all sponsors, volunteers, participants and attendees for your continued dedication of a long-standing tradition.  The fair cannot happen without the donations and countless hours you spend making it a successful experience for everyone.
