Ten days from now, one event will bring together 475 participating kids, 600 exhibitors and their more-than 6,000 exhibits, a herd of professional rodeo cowboys and more livestock animals than you can count together on 49 acres in Wyoming’s Wind River Country. In its 103rd year, the Fremont County Fair and Wind River Rodeo Roundup (34 years) is just as much about quality as quantity.
This year’s theme is “It’s a Fiesta,” and a list of new features have been added to the Aug. 1–6 party at 1010 Fairgrounds Road, Riverton.
For example, the new Fremont Family Fiesta Day—Sunday, July 31 will feature free food and fun for your family. It starts with a community picnic at 12 p.m. and the next two hours will feature games, inflatables, a hypnotist and more.
The Weiner Dog Races will also be a new contest of the fair Saturday, August 6, a far cry from the standard livestock judging and professional rodeo, both of which remain staples of the Fremont County Fair after more than 100 years.
The big draws—the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) Rodeos, the Rattlesnake Show, the Monster Truck Tour, the National Truck Pulling Series, and the Demolition Derby—are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. each night Aug. 1–6.
The PRCA rodeos kick the Fair evening off on Aug. 1 and 2. The Rattlesnake Show will be the featured entertainment the night of Aug. 3. The Monster Truck Tour is Aug. 4, the Truck Pulling Series is on Aug. 5, and the Demolition Derby will wrap things up the evening of Aug. 6.
Whether it’s the unusual or the traditional, the familiar or the new you seek in a Western, community event, the Fremont County Fair probably has what you see this summer. Browse the extensive schedule and plan your day at the 103rd Fremont County Fair.
