2024 Market Show Deadlines

The nomination procedures for Market Animals can be found under the Market Shows tab below.  Remember, you must complete the nomination process through your local Colorado State University Extension Office or FFA Advisor.  Nomination forms will not be accepted by the Colorado State Fair directly from exhibitors.  

Market Exhibitors may order DNA envelopes beginning March 1, 2024.  Please refer to the Market Show Deadlines posted above to make sure you know when your DNA needs to be postmarked to the Fair.  Click on the box below to order your DNA.

There will be no Open or Youth Poultry or Rabbit shows for 2024.  There will be Market Poultry and Market Rabbit shows for 4-H/FFA exhibitors and the information for those shows may be found with the rest of the Market Shows.
