The Southern Ute Tribal Fair has always been known for its events and exhibits. In this issue of The Southern Ute Drum, we would like to celebrate the decades of memories that have been made over the years through dedicated participation by our community members. Our elders often speak of their involvement in particular events and how they look forward to them every year. Our youth have an opportunity to compete in many of the same events and recently added events created just for them.
Creativity is always shown in the exhibits that are on display for judging during the week of the Southern Ute Tribal Fair; this year is no different. The Culture Department is already seeing interest in September’s event and fielding questions regarding the exhibits for this year’s fair. The Southern Ute Tribal Fair premium books are being printed as we speak. Be on the lookout for the “schedule of events” for activities and exhibits to be offered in the upcoming 100th Annual Southern Ute Tribal Fair. Good luck to all contestants and event participants!
