Dust off Your Boots and Join the Fun at the Lively Sandoval County Fair

As a new school year approaches, the 2023 Sandoval County Fair offers the perfect end-of-summer celebration with fun events for all ages. All are invited to experience a quintessential summer extravaganza with delectable fair food, vendors, and entertainment.

Running August 2–6, the Sandoval County Fair will feature livestock exhibits, dancing, rodeo events, Pow Wows, vendor booths, and the iconic fair parade. In addition to beloved fair favorites, this year’s fair brings two all-new events—the First Annual Chili Cookoff and the First Annual Watermelon Eating Contest—both taking place on Saturday, August 5, alongside the annual parade.

A celebration of local agriculture, this year’s fair will focus on the theme of “Celebrating the Bounty of our Country.”  Visitors can explore and learn about local agricultural traditions through visiting livestock barns, watching livestock shows, or heading to the rodeo. Rodeos will take place nightly Thursday–Saturday, followed by a dance each evening. A youth rodeo will take place on Sunday, August 6 at 11am.
