Welcome to the Carbon County Fair Web Site! The theme for our 94th  annual Fair is "Born in a Barn”!

Fair Week includes Mud Volleyball, Tablescaping Competition, Stock Dog Trials, Rodeos, Junior Livestock Shows, Team Roping, a Ranch Rodeo, Mutton Bustin’, Wild Pony Races, Dummy Roping, Food, Fun, and the week caps off with the Junior Livestock Sale, and Mini Broncs and Mini Bulls Friday night.  Saturday is the Demolition Derby, which is always a packed house!  We pack as much as we can into one week! The Carbon County Fair is our chance to showcase the  youngest members of Carbon County, Wyoming, through their 4-H and FFA Projects.
