This schedule for this year’s Wyoming State Fair has been compacted into 4 days, down from the 8 day schedule that the fair normally encompasses. State Fair Director James Goodrich says the change was due to a decrease in state financial support because of the economic downturn the state has experienced over the last few years. This year’s fair will run from August 15th through the 18th. Due to the condensed schedule, more events will happen every day at the fair. While the full fair schedule is still being finalized, the goal is to include all of the 4H and FFA competitions that have been part of the fair in previous years. The schedule for this year’s Wyoming State Fair is expected to be released soon.
