HIGHER GROUND FAIR

About the Higher Ground Fair​

 

The Higher Ground Fair came to life within the Wyoming nonprofit organizations Action Resources International and 

Feeding Laramie Valley. Now going on its fifth year, the fair celebrates and promotes the values of rural Rocky Mountain living that draw from age-old tradition in order to create sustainable communities for the future. 

The organizers and vendors at the Higher Ground Fair are committed to finding, showcasing and promoting materials, products, labor, ingredients, and concepts that utilize compassionate practices developed to support the health of our planet, and as much as possible originate from the six Rocky Mountain states of

Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming and the Native First Nations that call this region home.

 

The Higher Ground Fair features:

  • Inspirational speakers, live music and entertainment, dance and wellness classes and local food vendors.

  • Composting and Recycling workshops and gardening demos at the Feeding Laramie Valley Farm.

  • Live animal demonstrations and livestock education: draft horses, llamas, goats, dogs and more.

  • Family gardening, farming and ranching at the center of the fair: displays, workshops, DIY cold frames and more.

  • Solar power for everyday needs: hands-on lessons and displays, personal or small business needs information.

  • Upcycled sculpture garden dedicated to a higher purpose.

  • High Country Corn Hole Showdown benefiting the Foster Grandparents of the Wyoming Rockies.

  • Llama and Alpaca performance show, vendors and displays: all weekend long!

  • Kids' Adventure Zone and daily children's costume and llama parade.

  • Parade of Flags to bring color, flow, direction and beauty to the Higher Ground Fair.

We are pleased and grateful to the Wyoming Arts Council and Wyoming Cultural Arts Fund for providing funding to the 2017 Higher Ground Fair through their generous and transparent public grant process.
