DENVER — The Colorado State Fair will be using an electronic card system for buyers to make purchases this year.

The cards will allow the fair to go “cashless,” said General Manager Chris Wiseman.

“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,” Wiseman said.

He will be answering questions about the new change Friday from 9 to 10 a.m. during an Internet Q&A forum.
