Colorado State Fair Foundation

Mission Statement

...To enhance youth programming, education and experiences at the Colorado State Fair. 

CSFF Ambassadors

The Foundation is excited to announce a new youth program at the Fair - The El Pomar Ambassador Program.  This year we will be organizing a group of youth volunteers to act as ambassadors during our 11 day fair in late August.  These ambassadors will serve as hosts to the thousands of guests we see at fair time.  They will provide information on events, directions to attractions, and other guest services.  The ambassadors will receive 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.  This training will be held on Saturday August 2, 2014 from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM. As a way of thanking these ambassadors, each of them will receive 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 will earn!  If you would like more information on the program or are interested in becoming an ambassador, please contact Michelle at the Foundation (719) 404-2010, click the link below to apply, or fill out the printable application and bring it to training on August 2nd at the fairgrounds!

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.
