The Wyoming State Fair will be hosting Military Appreciation Day on Wednesday, August 17th. The festivities are presented by Wyoming Rural Electric Cooperatives and the Wyoming Military Department. In gratitude for everything the members of the Military have done for our country, communities, and families, the Wyoming State Fair hosts the annual appreciation day in celebration. The Wyoming Rural Electric Cooperatives will be distributing 75 complementary rodeo tickets to military members and veterans at their booth on the midway.

The PRCA Rodeo will feature a Mounted Color Guard ceremony, military branch songs played by local high school bands, the National Anthem, and an invocation.

With banners hung high to signify Military Appreciation Day, fair goers can also expect various military equipment on display, ROTC youth handing out flags, and other festivities to celebrate our members of the military. 

“To me Military Appreciation Day at the Wyoming State Fair is a day to acknowledge, honor and remember the sacrifices that have been made by our past and present military personnel to keep us safe and our country free.”, states Becky Condie, Member Services Coordinator of the Wheatland Rural Electric Association. We encourage all military members to come enjoy the Wyoming State Fair this year, as we thank them for their service.
