Wyoming State Fair

Douglas is bracing for the 50,000 people that will flood in from around the region for the Wyoming State Fair, which starts Saturday.  Fair staples, such as the Ranch Rodeo, the arm wrestling championship and the fiddle contest are back.  But there will be new events on the schedule, too.  Dock Dogs is a race for canines through an obstacle course.

Wyoming Public Media

Wyoming Public Media captured the oral history of Wyoming’s families, farms and ranches during the 2012 Wyoming State Fair. WPM set up a booth giving away fans for the hot summer day and did a live broadcast with Grady Kirkpatrick’s Morning Music featuring an acoustic performance from Wyoming’s Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers Band.  WPM recorded Wyoming Oral Histories of fairgoers that stopped by to chat. Enjoy a few of these engaging stories on the link below…
