From its inception, Steamboat Today has been the community’s newspaper. The free daily was launched quickly with a small staff, and throughout the past 25 years, it has grown to become Routt County’s trusted source for news and information as well as serving as a catalyst for business growth through advertising.
It takes an act of God, or in Routt County, the annual fair, to entice local ranchers out of the hayfields and off the ranch for several days in August. For the past century, the Routt County Fair has been the one event that brings together ranch families and others from all corners of the county — Yampa, Hahn’s Peak, Pleasant Valley, Oak Creek and Clark — to congregate, compete and camp at the historic fairgrounds in Hayden.
The 100th rendition of the Routt County Fair begins Friday night at the fairgrounds in Hayden and lasts for a full week with several new events planned that pay tribute to the fair’s century-long history.
