The Colorado State Fair will take place this year, but with changes to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The Colorado Department of Agriculture announced Tuesday the fair will allow certain livestock and 4-H events to go forward under new state and local public health guidelines. Limited food and vendor booths will also be allowed, along with a smaller carnival than previous years. Some virtual events are also being considered.
New guidelines laid out by Gov. Jared Polis this week allow for more people to attend outdoor events, like the fair.
