Boulder County Fair (3 - 12 August) 2018

Preparations are underway for the upcoming show season that starts with the Highland Cattle show at the Boulder County Fair at the fairgrounds in Longmont. 


The Fair

From the website:

" The Boulder County Fair is the oldest fair in Colorado, operating since 1869. The Fair is a non-profit that rents the grounds and facilities from Boulder County who in turn is our main sponsor supporting the 4-H and open events during Fair."



The fairgrounds provide a comfortable family setting for a county fair at the foot of the Rockies.  All kinds of interesting events are scheduled this year including a demolition derby, jousting knights and a tractor pull. 



Highland Show

The Highland show is scheduled for Friday, August 10th at 2 P.M.

Over the last few years the Boulder County Highland Cattle show has exploded in exhibitors and entries.  While competitive, this show offers the opportunity to participate in a low threat, friendly environment.   If you have any interest in showing, learning to show  your cattle or just  'hanging out' with fellow Highland breeders consider putting the 2018 Boulder County Fair on your schedule.  

Over the last few years, the MSCHA board made improving the Boulder County Fair show and the MSHCA juniors program a priority.  

The MSHCA Incentive Fund Jackpot Bonus is an incentive program that rewards junior participants who compete in the Boulder County Fair and the National Western Stock Show.  Stay tuned for details on this year's incentive program.



Entry Information


Due to the increase in participation MSHCA and BCF are asking that exhibitors get their entries in as soon as possible to enable stalling for everyone.
