About The El Paso County Fair Association

The membership of the El Paso County Fair Association would like to take a moment to thank everyone who has worked to help produce the El Paso County Fair and Junior Livestock Show. So much effort goes into putting on a county fair, and so little is done to recognize those working behind the scenes.

Many people have worked diligently throughout the year on fund raising projects, scholarship programs, buyer's pools, barbeques, baked goods/arts and crafts auctions, and the livestock auction. Each of these wonderful people asked for nothing, and gave countless hours in the name of the youth of El Paso County. His or her reward comes in the success of the child everyone thought would never succeed; of seeing a child come home from college, and give freely of themselves to the next generation of Fair participants. Sometimes the reward is simply a smile from a toothless little boy who's getting his first trophy in a peewee show. These rewards are priceless in the eyes of those who volunteer their time, resources and money.

El Paso County Fair volunteers are truly hero's - they give so graciously, and ask for nothing for themselves. They are constantly setting a positive example of leadership and fair play for every child participating in the El Paso County Fair and Junior Livestock Show.

The El Paso County Fair Association would also like to express a huge thank you to all of our wonderful sponsors - thank you for sharing our mission for the youth of El Paso and surrounding areas. The El Paso County Fair Association couldn't do this without your support.

Finally, thank you to all the men and women who went before us, blazing the trail - we still depend on your leadership, expertise and experience.

To the youth participating in the El Paso County Fair and Junior Livestock Show, enjoy the fair and best wishes, there are more people pulling for you than you can imagine. If you see an adult helping out, take a moment to say thank you - you may find you just made a great friend.

Parents, if you would like to get involved, but don't know how, come join us on the 3rd Wednesday of each month. Progress only happens through the participation of caring people like you.

Sincerely,
The El Paso County Fair Association
