It’s time to go “Hog Wild” this weekend!

It’s Fair Time in Fremont County! Time to browse around the fairgrounds and eat all those forbidden foods…like cotton candy, hot dogs, corn dogs, deep-fried whatever, etc. What exactly does “Goin’ Hog Wild” mean? Hey…whatever you want it to mean! It’s Fair Week!

There’s always plenty to do every weekend in “The County,” but nothing brings our communities together like a county fair! So come on out and celebrate what makes us who we are, support our local cowboys, farmers, and ranchers, and show this great State of Wyoming what Fremont County is all about!

But wait, there’s more! There’s a main street cruise, a movie night, a ghost story or two…and a coolio Brewfest going on, too! Check it out…
