Denver County Fair is famous for hosting more spur-of-the-moment, jump-on-the-stage-to-compete Live Competitions than any other county fair in the nation! And this year, we are raising the bar again!
Blue Ribbon Ironing, Limbo and Karaoke competitions have been added to the central Gazebo stage. The Kitchen Stage will now feature daily Blue Ribbon Bug Eating Competitions, hosted by Little Herds of Texas. Pot Pavilion Live Competitions include Speed Joint Rolling, Grateful Dead Karaoke and a Doritos Eating Contest. Odor Eaters is hosting a Rotten Sneaker competition in the Kids Pavilion. And Blue Ribbon Air Hockey, Corn Hole, Ladder Ball and Beer Pong are slated for the Sports Pavilion.
Other favorites are returning as well, including the Corpses and Crowns Zombie Beauty Pageant, the Miss Denver County Fair Drag Queen Pageant, a slew of competitive eating contests and Blue Ribbon Musical Chairs, Diaper Derby and Stick Horse Races in the Kids Pavilion.
Live competitions are free to enter, and contestants are asked to show up at the designated stage 5 - 10 minutes prior to the contest start time. All times and locations will be posted online at www.denvercountyfair.org.
Winners of all LIVE Competitions receive a Blue Ribbon and free Denver County Fair poster at the Denver County Fair Store.
