Wyoming State Winter Fair and Trade Show Starts March 7 with Ultimate Miniature Bullriding.


Lander, WY - The Wyoming State Winter Fair starts this weekend, March 7 -8. The first Wyoming State Winter Fair and Trade Show was held in the old Safeway building which now houses the Lander City Hall. Later, the Trade Show was and still is held in the Bob Carey Fieldhouse. The Winter Fair Board of Directors still carries on what has now become an annual tradition. The fair has grown into a very up-beat, entertainment packed extravaganza and incorporates some of the ideas of the old time county fair with tons of stylized fun. Highlights include  miniature bull riding, a horse show, talent show, craft show, and new and return vendors with interesting goods and food for sale.

The Winter Fair Board is bringing in super entertainment as well as several new events that should please Winter Fair attendees young and old. The Ultimate Miniature Bull Riding will take place Saturday evening, March 7th followed by the ever popular Horse Show scheduled for Sunday, March 8th , both taking place at the Lander Old Timers Indoor Arena. The Winter Fair Trade Show will cap off the 48th Wyoming State Winter Fair March 12th ~ 14th at the Bob Carey Fieldhouse with vendors galore, great entertainment and a new sound system.
