The Colorado State Fair is prepared to house people, livestock, and pets that have been displaced by the Waldo Canyon Fire.
“We communicated with the Red Cross on Tuesday about this devastating fire and how the Colorado State Fair could help; we have offered our 4H and FFA dormitories for those who have been evacuated and our fairgrounds to house pets and livestock,” said General Manager, Chris Wiseman. “This fire will have far-reaching and long-lasting effects; it is important for Coloradans to come together and work through this as a unified community and the Colorado State Fair is committed to doing our part.”
Evacuation, Volunteer and Relief Efforts
We ask that residents work through the coordinated efforts of the Red Cross instead of contacting the Fair directly.
