Wyoming’s Premier Summer Event 

The Wyoming State Fair is saddling up for a big year! 110 days from now the Cowboy State will be hitting the State Fairgrounds & Event Complex to kick off the 110th year of Wyoming’s Premier Summer Event! To spur the 110-day countdown, the Wyoming State Fair board is excited to announce the lineup of Livestock Judges contracted to judge this year’s fair. 

For livestock exhibitors, this is an important announcement and exceptionally exciting as judges are a major factor in showmanship. Travelling from around the country, each judge brings their own expertise and experience to Wyoming State Fair livestock shows. Judging is the foundation for each exhibitor’s efforts to exercising, grooming, feeding, and showing their animals. Hence, the importance of well-versed judges. The State Fair Board is delighted to announce the names of the judges attending the 110th Wyoming State Fair. Below is a list of judges headed to the Wyoming State Fairgrounds & Event Complex in August to critique livestock shows in beef, sheep, swine, goats, and horses.  

Along with the excitement of announcing the livestock judges, the Wyoming State Fair has big plans in the works for this year’s fair to keep you on the edge of your seat. As always, you can expect a demolition derby, parade, rodeos, carnival rides, and other exhibitions from all walks of talent. From music headlines to entertainment shows, don’t miss out on the 110th year of funnel cake eating, rodeo watching, and an overall hootin’ and hollerin’ good time!
