“The El Paso County Fair will feature amazing entertainment options, many of which are included with daily admission,” said Stacy Starr, Fairgrounds Program Coordinator. “For those with limited transportation, getting a ride with Envida is a great opportunity to come out and enjoy the fair.”

The Fair features Camel Kingdom an entertaining and educational experience about dromedary camels. Dan Conner and his Reptile Adventures feature an 18-foot python, a 90-pound monitor lizard and 100-year-old alligator snapping turtle. Award-winning magician Jay Mattioli will amaze you with his talent.

Other entertainment includes the car show, ranch rodeo, petting zoo and the rides at the carnival.

And don’t forget to check out all the great projects the local 4-H and FFA participants have completed this year. “There are shows throughout the week where they will be exhibiting their animals as well as static tabletop displays,” Starr said.
