2013 Otero County Fair "Ranch Rodeo" canceled.
In order to help facilitate
our construction of new grandstand seating, the 2013 Otero County Fair
Ranch Rodeo has been canceled. Through the efforts of the legislature and
the Otero County Fair Board we will have a much needed improvement and
more spectator seating. We appreciate your interest and participation in
our past Ranch Rodeos and hope that when we have one in 2014 you will plan
We will send out information
prior to the sign up for the ranch rodeo in 2014.
Hope to see you in 2014!
Ranch Rodeo is a separate event held at our fairgrounds arena, and this
cancellation in no way effects the Otero County Fair Rodeo held during
our Annual Fair.
