I love all the events at the fair, however I mostly love the food! Where else can you get away with eating curly fries smothered in cheese sauce and green chili with a side of half a turkey leg? Lets not forget all the animals! The beautiful, and can I say “well groomed” cows, the just washed look of the rabbits and roosters, the soft and fuzzy new born lambs. I am always in awe of the 4H exhibits; the prize winning vegetables, and the arts & crafts. These kids are amazing to say the least. The fair starts TODAY, August 7th and runs through Sunday,August 11th. There is still time to get here to Durango, stay the weekend and experience the best events! Call Gateway Reservations for last minute lodging options and have one of our agents help you with some fun discounted packages as well.
