Today is an exciting day for the Wyoming State Fair as we announce that the 2020 State Fair will take place as planned, pending exception approval from health officials. The fair is scheduled to take place August 11-15 in Douglas with an extensive health and safety plan in place. We have long been a gathering point for generations of families, while providing a quality educational experience and entertainment for all who have attended. The Wyoming State Fair is a celebration of all things Wyoming and showcases our pride in our traditions, agriculture, innovation, industry, youth, entrepreneurs, artists, entertainment and so much more. This year will be no different. Although we have all faced unprecedented challenges with the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to move forward with this year’s Wyoming State Fair, celebrating our 108th year!
 
We are also excited to reveal all-new branding of the Wyoming State Fair! As Wyoming’s Premier Summer Event, we want to ensure our brand reflects such. Thus, earlier this year the Wyoming State Fair board initiated a process to refine and refresh our brand. Today we are excited to reveal our new brand initiative which was unanimously approved by the Board at their June meeting this past Tuesday. The brand refresh includes a new logo and color palette, new website, and updated marketing materials. Phase one of the website has been completed, with new information and updates being added as they become available. All phases of the new website will be finalized by this fall.
 
We worked closely with our marketing agency in creating a new look that represents what makes Wyoming State Fair special. The fair has always been an event that has showcased the culture and heritage of Wyoming and has been a constant thread weaving through the fabric of Wyoming’s history. It is not just about the entertainment value, it’s about celebrating Wyoming, honoring our agriculture roots and supporting innovation and youth development.
 
Playing off the former logo and Wyoming tradition, the new logo features the famous steamboat at the center and a sunburst backdrop. It was important that our new brand reflects the nostalgia and excitement of what a fair means to so many and connects with the generations of fair-goers and participants.
 
In the coming months, we encourage the public to stay connected with us and look for regular Fair updates on our website and social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. We have some exciting news that we will be sharing soon including an announcement later today revealing our live grandstand entertainment lineup! 
 
We’re very much looking forward to a successful and safe 2020 Wyoming State Fair! For questions or to request an interview, please reach out to courtny.conkle@wyo.gov or 307-358-2398. Thank you for your ongoing support of our mission and entrepreneurialism in Wyoming!
