The Colorado State Fair is an event held annually in late August in Pueblo, Colorado. The state fair has been a tradition since October 9, 1872.[1] The fairgrounds also host a number of other events during the rest of the year.


When Colorado became a state in 1876, its state fair was already earning its place in history.[citation needed] 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.
