El Paso County Fair

When: July 18-25 2015

In 1905, folks traveled by horseback, covered wagon and any other mode of transportation available at the turn of the century to celebrate a bountiful potato harvest at a thanksgiving festival in Calhan. It was a simple gathering, highlighted by a potato and bean bake, live entertainment and horse races. Today, 110 years later, the El Paso County Fair has a lot more to offer. Saturday through July 25 you'll find everything from animal-centric contests and events to arts, music, food and more at the fairgrounds (366 10th St., Calhan). Ticket prices vary by day and events attended; find more information at elpasocountyfair.com. — Craig Lemley
