Are you a cupcake connoisseur? A salsa specialist? Pizza pro? Green chili champion? If you have a food or craft specialty, there just might be a contest for you to enter at the Colorado State Fair, brought to you by the Colorado Dept. of Agriculture. Some of the contests include baking, homebrew and craft beers, quilting, amateur art, and more. Some of the interesting contests this year include Pet Rock Olympics, gingerbread house decorating, baking with Girl Scout Cookies, and even a dress-your-doll contest. For a list of contests and the entry deadlines, click here. And if you’d rather judge those cupcake and beer contests, you can sign up here to volunteer.
The State Fair starts August 23 — visit their website for a complete schedule of events.
