CSFF Ambassadors

The Foundation has a new youth program at the Fair - The El Pomar Ambassador Program.  We organized a group of youth volunteers to act as ambassadors during our 11 day fair in late August.  These ambassadors served as hosts to the thousands of guests we see at fair time.  They provided information on events, directions to attractions, and other guest services.  The ambassadors received training prior to the Fair to equip them with historical knowledge of the Fair, information on current happenings at this year's Fair, and travel knowledge of Pueblo and the surrounding area in general.  As a way of thanking these ambassadors, each of them received admission to the Fair, the opportunity to earn a free carnival ride band, and other insider benefits - not to mention the leadership opportunity and volunteer hours they earned!  The program was such a success, we plan to do it again next year.  If you would like more information on the program or are interested in becoming an ambassador, please contact Michelle at, click the link below to apply, or fill out the printable application and mail it to 1001 Beulah Ave. Pueblo, CO  81004.

It is the goal of the Colorado State Fair Foundation to provide a safe and secure facility for youth development through the renovation of our 4-H and FFA facilities.  We also look to expand and enhance youth programs at the Colorado State Fair. 
Currently, the Colorado State Fair Foundation is seeking donations for the renovation of the 4-H and FFA dormitories. Contributions can be in the form of in-kind supplies and services or monetary donations.
