EAGLE — Applications for the Eagle County Fair & Rodeo's Saddle Up program are now open.

Through the 2018 Saddle Up program, the Eagle County Fair & Rodeo partners with a local nonprofit organization to create a special experience for that nonprofit's clients, including free rodeo tickets and a barbecue for friends and supporters, featuring a private walk-through of the livestock exhibits and fair midway.

All applicants to the Saddle Up program must be registered 501(c)(3) nonprofits with up-to-date tax determination letters. Nonprofits must also be based in and primarily serve Eagle County.
