Fair Board Approves 2014 Fair Theme and a New Logo

Montrose County Fair and Rodeo

The Montrose County Fair Board recently approved the 2014 Fair and Rodeo Theme—“Vintage. New. You.” In conjunction with the theme approval, the board also voted to establish a new logo.

The theme was reinterpreted from the submission of 'Pioneer Days to Modern Ways' by Montrose County Fair & Rodeo Princess Jacey Taylor. Taylor took home the $50 prize for the top logo submission. The theme was chosen as it encompasses a wide variety of potential as well as celebrates the county’s rich history. Additionally, the theme represents movement toward new technology and the future while honoring community involvement in the oldest event in Montrose.

Fair Board President Doug Kimberlin indicated that the board was pleased by both the new theme and logo. “We are excited to weave the theme into this year’s fair,” said Kimberlin. “Agricultural programs such as 4-H are an important part of our local community and help develop outstanding young citizens to carry on our traditions and embrace new technologies.”

The new logo was designed by local creative talent Rene Bobo of Bobo Logos. For 2014, the new logo is customized with the theme as well as a silhouette of a cow. Both features will be changed annually to accommodate the new theme, as well as provide representation to different events and animals within the fair.

The Montrose County Fair & Rodeo will be held July 18-27, at the Montrose County Fairgrounds (1001 North 2nd Street). For more information, please call 970-252-4358Read on...
