Welcome to the Middle Park Fair and Rodeo


As we start a new century of western traditions I would like to welcome everyone to this year’s events, which include the CPRA Rodeo, Ranch Rodeo, Jr. Rodeo, along with 4-H Shows and the Livestock Sale.

I hope everyone takes some time to enjoy everything we work hard to organize. It takes so much time and volunteering to make this happen every year; please thank our County Commissioners from Grand and Summit Counties, our MPF&R Board, and countless sponsors and volunteers, without which, we couldn’t make any of this happen.

The dedication and history of our sponsors and volunteers to this annual event clearly shows the
pride each and every one of them has of our western heritage and the family atmosphere it provides. You will see this from the exhibits in the Extension Hall, the 4-H livestock, and small animal exhibits of our local youth and families, to the rodeos and displays of horsemanship and other events that show you the hard work of our youth and the talents of families in the Middle Park area we all call home.

We are constantly striving to provide the best entertainment and keep up with the ever
changing technologies and programs to ensure the best quality of animals for marketing and sale, the conservation of our lands, and improvement of our lifestyle. We do our best to provide entertainment for both the younger and older generations; whether it be throwing horseshoes or enjoying the numerous kid’s games, watching various 4-H shows, or enjoying the rodeos from the grandstands.

Please browse the website and scheduled events. Note the sponsors and superintendents and volunteers, and thank them as you can. Most of all enjoy the heritage we all are so proud to celebrate each and every year. Again the Middle Park Fair & Rodeo Board and I wish to personally thank our County Commissioners, both Grand and Summit, all the superintendents of events, and the countless sponsors, near and far, and volunteers that make this all happen. We are looking forward to a new century of western heritage and working with each one of you to preserve it.

Enjoy and have fun!
