Governor Marks the Beginning of the 100th Celebration of the Wyoming State Fair

CHEYENNE, Wyo. –  The Wyoming State Fair starts Saturday in Douglas. This year marks the 100th State Fair in Wyoming history. Governor Matt Mead and his family will be participating in events during the fair and urge others to join them.

“The State Fair is a remarkable event that allows people from Wyoming to gather and celebrate our heritage and put an emphasis on our history,” Governor Mead said. “Generations of families have attended and competed at this fair and after 100 years it continues to be a most significant event in Wyoming. The incredible family and community involvement through the years shows how much this state values agriculture and reflects the role farming and ranching play across Wyoming.”

Governor Mead thanks the many sponsors and volunteers who have helped make this 100th Anniversary possible. The Wyoming State Fair started in 1905, but missed seven years for various reasons.
