Kit Carson County Fair and Carousel

Burlington is more than a waystation along I-70. It’s home to the memorable Kit Carson County Fair as well as a much-renowned historic carousel—long hidden from view before a loving restoration returned it to public use. We’ll start our day with a free barbecue and watermelon feast before enjoying some of the events at the fair. We’ll take in the Old Town Museum, with history (some of it really fearsome!) and even a few wild characters coming to life for our visit. It’ll be a late night home, but you’ll be grateful you came. From the sights and smells of the fairgrounds to the halcyon days of your youth reborn aboard the carousel, we’ll have a day of riches at the Kit Carson County Fair and Carousel. Includes bus transportation, guides and museum admission.
