An original Colorado tradition since October 1872, the Colorado State Fair was first conducted by the Southern Colorado Agricultural and Industrial Association. It was held exclusive of financial support from the Pueblo community or the state of Colorado until 1903. The grounds of Lake Minnequa served as its venue until 1901, the year it was transferred to its present-day location of 80-acre fairgrounds in Pueblo, Colorado.

Thousands of locals and visitors from all over come to Pueblo during late August or the first week of September to celebrate 11 days of Mexican style rodeo and fiesta. This year 2011, the fair will kick-off on August 26 and will end on September 5.

The Colorado State Fair highlights consist of rodeo shows including some bull tailing and bull riding. Other things to do include listening to live music and other performances, the Fiesta Queen beauty contest, parades, horse and livestock exhibits, and hundreds of food and crafts vendors.
