The Colorado State Fair spans from August 26 to September 5, closing out summer with a wholesome melee of music, rides, fair eats, and family fun. Grammy-nominated country vocal quartet Little Big Town opens the festivities with feel-good grooves of four-part harmonies and sweet southern strums from a guitar with strings made of funnel cake. Trade in auditory amusements for adrenaline amusements on the fair's lively midway, buzzing with more than 45 rides. Each unlimited pass grants thrill seekers access to high-speed thrill machines, including the 131-foot-high Power Booster, which flies through the air at more than 60 mph.
Feed the fair's tamer side at livestock and small-animal shows, or visit the Fine Art Exhibition to see displays from burgeoning artists, students, and professionals from throughout the state. When sufficiently salivated, attendees can meander to the rows of refreshment stands lining the grounds to nosh on hot dogs and puffs of cotton candy or whisper sweet nothings to ears of corn.
Though the Colorado State Fair offers several promotions and value days, this Groupon represents the most flexible deal available.
