The Colorado State Fair is an event held annually in late July Pueblo, Colorado. The state fair has been a tradition since October 9, 1872. The fair hosts the annual National Little Britches Rodeo Finals.
When Colorado became a state in 1876, its state fair was already earning its place in history. In 1869, approximately two thousand people converged on what is now Pueblo for a horse exhibition; from that meager beginning was born the Colorado State Fair.
Agriculture leaders from Colorado and the federal government will be at the Colorado State Fair on Friday to open the first-ever Colorado Proud Store.
The store will feature only products made in Colorado, in accordance with the mission of Colorado Proud, a function of the Colorado Department of Agriculture, which aims to helps consumers identify Colorado products in their local grocery stores.
Five agriculture officials, including Colorado Commissioner of Agriculture John Salazer, will be present at the store’s grand opening, which will take place at 11:30 a.m. on Aug. 28, inside the Colorado Building at the Colorado State Fair, located at 1001 Beulah Ave. in Pueblo.
The Colorado Proud Store will remain open until September 5, 2016. The store is a new concept for Colorado Proud and will open annually during the state fair.
