The Kittitas County Fair and Ellensburg Rodeo kicks off on Thursday in downtown Ellensburg.

Spokesperson Sarah Mays says the gates open at 10:00 a.m. Thursday and the fun continues through Monday.

“We have lots of great entertainment, exhibits, lots of fun and of course Ellensburg Rodeo.”

Mays says once again there’s a rumor and even a false website that’s been set up saying the fair and rodeo are cancelled. But Mays says it’s false and they’re trying to figure out how to stop the person spreading the rumor.

She says just ignore the rumor and website and plan to attend the Kittitas County Fair and Ellensburg Rodeo when it kicks off on Thursday morning.

Among the performers this year are Cody Beebe and the Crooks, the Copper Mountain Band and more. You can view the schedule of events and find other information at the Fair's website.
