Cash-flow issues could force State Fair to leave Pueblo after 146 years
PUEBLO, Colo. — The Colorado State Fair could be leaving Pueblo after 146 years because of cash-flow problems.
Members of the Legislative Audit Committee urged legislators on Tuesday to move the fair from Pueblo so another Colorado city or town can bid for it.
Pueblo officials have cut financial support to the fair by two-thirds in the past three years. It’s estimated the fair generates about $29 million in economic impact to the area.
Officials said the fairground lost $3.3 million last year.
