Get ready for some Kick-In up fun at the 2018 Boulder County Fair. Each year the Fair implements a full marketing strategy that includes print, radio, television, digital and social media placements. Below is the 2016 marketing strategy and demographics.

Media Outreach

9 News television exposure

Social Media website exposure on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram
During the week of fair, the Facebook weekly page update showed a weekly reach of 159,223 in 2014 and 180,240 in 2015
Advertising is chosen to integrate all forms from print, radio, television and social media which attract fairgoers. This year's advertising will duplicate last year with the addition of more community event postings, electronic billboards on I-25 and banners along Hwy 287, additional social media marketing and e-mail newsletters. We have added a google grant which increased 50,000 viewers to the website. In addition, we are designing a new interactive website especially geared for Fairs and Festivals.

Direct Benefit

These banners are strategically placed in areas where fairgoers watch performances such as the outdoor arena which had 4,000 fans watching the demolition derby.
