The Arapahoe County Fairgrounds Event Center is closed until further notice, and the difficult decision has been made to cancel the 2020 Arapahoe County Fair. The health and safety of our community is our number one priority, and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to monitor public health orders and guidance from the Tri-County Health Department, Governor Jared Polis, and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
The Fairgrounds Event Center was repurposed into an Alternate Care Facility in March to accept guests recovering from COVID-19 should hospitals become overwhelmed with critical cases. The site will remain set up as an Alternate Care Facility indefinitely, per Tri-County Health Department and the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Management, in the event that additional support is needed for regional hospitals over the summer.
Fairgrounds staff are working with customers to reschedule events or offer refunds as necessary. We are not accepting new bookings for 2020 due to the Fairground’s current set up as an Alternate Care Facility, but scheduling is in full swing for 2021. Please contact the Fairgrounds staff at 303-795-4955 to discuss your 2021 event needs.
