Colorado State Fair Goes Cashless

 Colorado Department of Agriculture

PUEBLO, Colo. – The Colorado State Fair is making a big change this year by going “cashless.”  This means fair fans will be using a loadable smart card for their purchases during the 11-day event.  While this provides a number of positive changes for fairgoers and staff, we understand there will also be questions regarding the use of the cards including:

  • How do the cards benefit the public?
  • How do the cards benefit the fair?
  • How do they work?
  • What happens to the extra money on the card at the end of the fair?
  • How much do they cost?
  • Can my kids have a card?
  • What happens if I lose my card?

State Fair General Manager, Chris Wiseman, will be answering questions from the public and media during a live, open forum, online Q & A on Friday, May 31, 9-10am.  Participants will be able to email questions and Wiseman will answer them via a live stream.

The Colorado State Fair runs from August 23 – September 2, 2013.  For more information, visit
