Established by Action of the Board of County Commissioners dated March 4, 1952

The purpose of the Fair Board, as set forth by the BOCC, is to organize, promote, oversee, and financially account for the annual Montrose County Fair and Rodeo, negotiating fair-related contracts and conducting fair-related business and activities as deemed appropriate. The Fair Board will review and approve expenditures of fair-related funds budgeted, will collect fees as a result of fair-related activities and pay any invoices or expenditures submitted to and approved by the Fair Board for payment.

Each member of the Fair Board is appointed to serve a three year term. The Fair Board meets the third Tuesday of each month in the Friendship Hall Pioneer Room, County Fairgrounds, at 7:00 p.m.
