WELCOME TO THE 2007 MONTEZUMA COUNTY FAIR!
The 2007 Fair Board would like to welcome all visitors and residents of the Four Corners
to the Montezuma County Fair. This year’s theme is “Country Pride.”

The Board would like to thank all the hard working volunteers who help make the fair a
success every year. It takes the support of all the 4-H clubs, FFA clubs, parents, and
community spirit to prepare for the fair beginning months in advance.

The 2007 Montezuma County Fair has added some new and exciting events as well as
many of our favorite events. There will be fun for everyone, young and old, including an
appearance by The Country Gold Tour.

Bring the entire family and have some “Country Pride.” See you at the fair!
