The 56th Annual Colorado Farm Show has been cancelled

The Colorado Farm Show Board of Directors announced that its annual event, held each January since 1964 has been canceled for 2021.

According to the Colorado Farm Show website,

“In the best interest of our Vendors, Volunteers & Visitors, the Colorado Farm Show Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the event in 2021 due to rapidly changing conditions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

In a typical year, it’s estimated that more than 35,000 people attend the three-day show which includes more than 300 exhibitors. However, with the coronavirus situation across the United States and the situation here in Colorado and after talks with both City, County, and State officials the Board of Directors made the extremely difficult decision to cancel the event which will return January 25, 26, 27, 2022.

“Integrity, history and financial commitment were the main factors in making this tough decision over the last five months,”

said Erich Ehrlich, Colorado Farm Show Board Chair

There is a silver lining…In keeping with the Colorado Farm Show’s mission statement, “…to promote and support agriculture throughout the State of Colorado through the educational seminars, exhibits, trade show, exchange programs, scholarships, and any other method available to assist in obtaining this goal, the Board of Directors unanimously voted to continue to fully fund and award the 2021 Scholarship Program.
