Home of Colorado's first "Home-Owned" Carnival

  Boasting a 42-foot-tall Vintage Ferris wheel, a focal point for fairgoers for years, the Eastern Colorado Roundup sports many attractions including a kiddie Ferris Wheel, a small train with 8 ft. long cars that circle the Fairgrounds, live ponies, and much more. Visit Akron during the county fair and enjoy the exhibits, rodeo, county events, food, and of course, the animals.


  August in Akron, and the rest of Washington County, turns to thoughts of the annual Eastern Colorado Roundup. The Roundup features fun for all ages with 4-H youth projects, good hamburgers and cotton candy. Horse, swine, dairy cows, goats, rabbits, cattle, sheep and poultry all call the Washington County Fairgrounds home during this annual event.

  Bring the family to watch the PRCA Rodeo or the NSPA Tractor Pull. Saturday night is always a good show featuring Top Country Music stars. This year we will be featuring Lil' Texas AND the Locash Cowboys.

So come see how "The West Was Fun" at the Eastern Colorado Roundup from July 29th - August 3rd, 2013.
