Colorado State Fairgrounds-CSU Pueblo Building and Fine Arts Building
As their names indicate, the historic 1921 Poultry & Pet Stock Pavilion and 1946 Rabbit Building both housed animals (poultry & stock and rabbits, respectively) during the Colorado State Fair in years past.
While their specific functions have changed since erection, both buildings are still used in the State Fair – now showcasing artists in the Gallery of Fine Arts Building (Poultry & Pet Stock) and a large diorama of the statewide water system in the CSU-Pueblo Building (Rabbit Building). Like several other grants awarded to the Department of Agriculture for State Fair structures in recent years, this grant will fund major rehabilitation of two roofing systems, including gutter, mortar, and chimney repair, so that both buildings may be viable for sharing Colorado’s culture in Fairs for years to come.
