Northwest Colorado Expo

Jackson County is pleased to host the 2018 NORTHWEST COLORADO 4-H EXPOSITION (EXPO), June 11-15 at the Jackson County Fairgrounds in Walden. The horse portion of the event will be June 11-13, the dog section running from June 11-12, and the livestock section running from June 14-15. EXPO began in 1969 with the purpose of helping 4-H livestock members develop grooming and showmanship skills in the show ring. In the continuing tradition of EXPO, 4-H members will spend the first day in workshops with resource specialists from the livestock industry. The second day is full of excitement in the show ring, in which youth exercise their skills acquired the previous day. EXPO is set up to be a learning experience for 4-H livestock project members and not a livestock contest or county fair. Even though there are showmanship, prospect and riding classes at EXPO, the real purpose is to teach and give "hands on" experience to 4-H members on how to have a successful livestock project at their county fair.
