The Junior livestock sale will take place on August 1, in-person with livestock animals arriving on July 27 for rabbits and poultry and July 28 for Beef, Sheep and Swine. The committee made the decision to hold the sale in person because there were some issues for minors last year during the virtual sale.
Admission cost 10 dollars for adults and eight dollars for youth 5 to 14 years old. Children four and under are free.
The Fair is sponsored by Central Colorado Title and Escrow, Rocky Mountain Cabinets, The Salida Gunshop and Central Colorado Dermatology.
