The Wyoming State Fair had its roots back as early as 1886 in an event called the "First Annual Wyoming Territorial Fair" conducted by the Board of Trustees of the Wyoming Fair Association. The original 80 acre site is lost to history but was somewhere along the old Cheyenne and Northern Railroad right-of-way, near Cheyenne. This must have continued for at least 4 years as there is mention of this event taking place as late as 1890.
Rodeo has become one of the strong features of the Fair, with such wild and wooly participants as Mabel Strickland and Prairie Rose, and incredible acts such as Carver’s Driving Horses. Today, it is a P.R.C.A. sanctioned rodeo with top names in the business attending.
Future growth of the Fair includes the Multi-purpose Building proposal and the multi-million dollar master plan of development. Attendance also has been increasing, from a humble 2,500 people in 1905 to tens of thousands of people presently visiting the Fair.
A lot has changed since 1905. It’s 4-H or FFA now, with the activities being participated in by boys and girls of all ages - learning to do things better and having had the opportunities to provide a solid foundation on which to base future learning. Competition in 4-H and FFA is always tough, and justly so, as competition provides the youth of Wyoming the incentive to work harder and to learn more. Education is a part of the Wyoming State Fair, "The Show Window of Wyoming"!
The Wyoming State Fair is a division of the Wyoming Department of Agriculture.
