2012 Wyoming State Fair - Wyoming's 100th!

Check out www.WyStateFair.com for details!

In 2012 the Wyoming State Fair will celebrate its 100th year! Held each year the third full week of August, the Wyoming State Fair is a celebration ofall things Wyoming. From the grandstand events to the show ring, year-in and year-out this event provides an outstanding source of education and entertainment.

Taking center stage in the grandstands will be a demolition derby, a ranch rodeo, a Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) rodeo, concerts and more!


Along the midway you’ll find even more action with clowns, hypnotists, a carnival and numerous exhibits. Amidst the exhibit halls and in the livestock show rings you’ll see Wyoming’s best competing for prizes and the top spot in the state show. Wyoming businesses also join the action by providing commercial exhibits.

The first Wyoming State Fair was held in Douglas in 1905. There were seven years, some during the Great Depression and others during World War II, that the event wasn’t held. In 2012, Wyoming is ready to celebrate this outstanding tradition. Here's a glimpse at the event line-up:
