Event Rules & Code of Conduct

Let’s get down to it. You’re excited and raring to go on what will undoubtedly be your favorite summer event! We can’t wait to meet you all, and wish the best of times for you to come. To ensure the frowns stay upside down, here’s a list of event rules and our code of conduct we’ve put together for you.


To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all our event guests, please respect the following rules:

  1. All persons, bags, parcels, clothing, and other items may be subject to screening/security checks at the event entrances and within the event.
  2. We reserve the right not to allow any bag, parcel or other item to be brought into the event, and to deal with any unattended object in such way as we consider appropriate.
  3. Please show common courtesy to fellow event guests by not using profanity or engaging in unsafe, illegal, disruptive or offensive behavior.
  4. For your safety and the safety of others, please refrain from running.
  5. Use appropriate entrances and exits only. Remain on designated walkways and paths and refrain from climbing or crossing over fences and barricades.
  6. Proper attire, including shoes and shirts, must be worn at all times. Clothing with multiple layers is subject to search. We reserve the right to deny admission to or remove any person wearing attire that we consider inappropriate or attire that could detract from the experience of other guests.
  7. For the comfort of all guests, smoking of tobacco, e-cigarettes or other products that produce a vapor or smoke are allowed only in designated smoking areas.
  8. Guests who are under the age of 21 shall not be served or in possession of alcoholic beverages. Guests who consume alcoholic beverages must do so in a responsible manner. Alcoholic beverages purchased at the event are not permitted outside of the event perimeter. Guests who violate any alcohol rules (over consume, provide alcohol to those under the age of 21, demonstrate irresponsible behavior or attempt to conceal alcoholic items) will be denied entrance and/or escorted from the event. The event reserves the right to revoke or otherwise restrict drinking privileges of any guest, regardless of age.
  9. Please supervise your children at all times. Guests under age 14 must be accompanied by a guest age 18 or older to enter the event.
  10. Access to attractions and other experiences depends upon the safety rules for each attraction.
  11. Parking is first-come, first-served and guests should only park in designated locations. Parking lots close 90 minutes following the conclusion of the event. Overnight parking is prohibited. Vehicles parked incorrectly or left overnight may be ticketed or towed.
  12. Inclement Weather: Please be aware that our event is held rain or shine, including all shows in the Rodeo Arena. Weather could cause closures, delays and cancellations. In the case of severe weather, you may be instructed to leave the Fairgrounds - you will need your ticket for re-entry after the severe weather passes. In most cases, your vehicle is your safest shelter. All delay or cancellation announcements will be posted to our event website at www.CelebrateJeffco.com.
  13. All tickets and other entitlements are non-transferable, non-exchangeable, non-refundable, revocable and void if altered. Tickets exclude admission to separately ticketed events/activities separately priced.

If you leave the event and plan to re-enter the same day, you must have your hand stamped at the exit gate and present your ticket or confirmation for re-entry into the event on the same day. Children should be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The event is subject to weather closures and closures due to capacity. The number of tickets available is limited. Events and tickets may sell out early. Tickets are valid only during specific event dates and operating hours. The bearer of any ticket grants Jeffco Fair & Festival and the Jefferson County Fairgrounds the right to film, videotape or photograph the bearer for any purpose whatsoever without any payment.
  14. The holder of this ticket assumes all risks and danger of personal injury and loss of life and all other hazards (including the risk of lost, stolen, or damaged property) arising from, or in any way related to, the event for which the ticket is issued, whether occurring prior to, during, or after the event AND waives any related claims that you might have against Jefferson County, and its affiliates, employees, volunteers and other agents, and agrees to indemnify Jefferson County from and against any such claims. If the ticket holder is a minor, the terms of this paragraph also apply to the parent(s)/guardian(s) of the minor. Additional restrictions may apply and benefits are subject to change without notice.
