The Sweetwater Events Complex board and staff is committed to the Sweetwater/Daggett County Fair. At this time, the Sweetwater/Daggett County Fair will be a scaled down version focused on youth 4-H and FFA projects.
Larry Lloyd, Executive Director explained, “Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation, it is difficult to predict what the national, state, and community guidelines for events will be at the time of the scheduled fair dates. Our priority is ensuring that 4-H and FFA participants can complete their projects.” With state restrictions on gatherings the Sweetwater/Daggett County Fair will concentrate on 4-H and FFA participants, including those participating in static, small animals, horses and livestock.
Sweetwater Events Complex staff, working closely with Sweetwater County 4-H and Green River FFA, is preparing for a live show that will allow 4-H and FFA participants to showcase their projects. That live event would end with the youth livestock sale, just as it has in years past. Should restrictions by the Governor or University of Wyoming Extension make a live fair impossible, a virtual fair will be implemented. A virtual fair would consist of participants submitting photos and videos to be judged online and would also feature an online livestock auction.
