The fairground is located on west Yellowstone Highway on the waterside of North Platte River. The state fair was started in 1886 as the “First Annual Wyoming Territorial Fair near Cheyenne. After events in Laramie, Sheridan and Casper Douglas won the nomination in 1905. There were no fair events in 1935 to 1937 due to the Depression and no in 1942 to 1945 due to the World War II
