. The event, envisioned as a hip, urban version of the classic rural-style county fair, will be held July 28-31 at the National Western Stock Show complex.
Cain and cohorts Chandler Romeo and Tracy Weil announced the idea for a fair last September (Off Limits, second item), saying Denver was one of the only Colorado counties without one.
"Our rodeo won't involve animals. It will be done on skateboards and bicycles," Cain said then. Other activities will include competitive baking, competitive eating, a craft show, an art show, a freak show.
