When it comes to barrel racing, team roping, pole bending and more, you'll find all the action you could want at the Delta County Fair & Rodeo.

The action begins at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 4, with the Junior Rodeo. Come watch the next generation of rodeo contestants compete to be named Delta County's best! Boys and girls in four age groups -- 6 and under, 7-9, 10-13, and 14-18 -- will compete in barrel racing, pole bending, goat tail untie, flag race, team roping, goat tying, calf riding, breakaway roping, steer riding, calf touching and calf roping.

Team roping is featured Monday, Aug. 6, at 7 p.m. Contestants will be vying to advance to finals and the chance to win saddles during the Saddle Shoot-out Finals Friday, Aug. 10.

On Thursday, Aug. 9, at 7 p.m., local ranchers will compete in the Mountain States Ranch Rodeo. This isn't your average rodeo -- teams of local ranchers compete in timed events common on working cattle ranches. This event is proof that the western way of life is alive and well in Delta County. This event is limited to 10 teams of five, with the winners advancing to the Mountain State Ranch Rodeo Finals in Montrose.

In addition to the team ropers competing in the Saddle Shoot-out Finals on Friday, there will be mutton bustin' and the coronation of the 2018 fair royalty. Mutton bustin' begins at 6:30 p.m.

Between these events, the arena will be the site of an antique tractor pull, followed by freestyle motorcross at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 7, and the Demolition Derby and ATV Barrel Race at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11.

Tickets are required for all events except the Junior Rodeo.
