SATURDAY, AUGUST 22, 2020


    Dear County Fair Supporter,

    The Taos County Fair Association regrets to inform you that we are unable to host this year’s County Fair, due to adhering to governor’s orders during this pandemic. However, we will be holding our first online Jr. Livestock Auction on Saturday August 22, 2020 at 4 PM. This has left many of our young 4- Hers that have dedicated so much time and hard work raising their animals for this year’s Jr. Livestock show and sale discouraged. Many of these 4-Hers use the proceeds of the sale of their animals to fund their next project also saving money for their college fund. We cannot express how hard these young individuals work and the responsibility they take on when they choose to raise an animal.

    We would like to ask businesses, organizations and individuals of our community to please help these future leaders by purchasing an animal or offering an add-on, through our virtual auction at ( 575-485-2508.

    Live online bidding will be handled by J and J Auctioneers. Live bidding will begin at 4 PM on Saturday August 22, 2020. Pre-bidding and viewing of the catalog will begin on Friday night after the sale order has been determined. For those who cannot bid online please contact a fair board member that can bid on your behalf. Our goal is to ensure these kids have the opportunity to sell their animals in hopes they are able to be rewarded for all their hard work.

    If you would like to help out our youth but don’t wish to purchase an animal, there is also the option of making an add on (donation) to the 4-H member of your choice. Please contact SweetPine Drake (Taos County Fair Board Treasurer) 575-420-5271 or or Denise Winslow-Lawrence (Taos County Fair Board Vice President) 575-200-9947 or
    If you wish to bid and are unable to attend please contact Gerald Salazar, (Large Livestock superintendent) 575-741-0506 or or Matthew Torres (Taos County Fair Board President) 575-770-2020,

    Please contact the Taos County Extension Office for questions or more information 575-758-3982. Hope you can help.
