Latest Design Plan Featured in Creede Magazine

The Mineral County Fairgrounds has a new name: The Upper Rio Grande Events and Recreation Complex. This long-range regional project is expected to play a significant role in economic development and year-round recreation. By providing activities previously unavailable to the community, this complex will enhance the quality of life for generations. In considering the impacts that the recreation complex will have on Creede, MCFA sought to dream big. Not only will the recreation center serve local residents, but it will offer opportunities to the entire San Luis Valley: swimming lessons and competitions, tournaments for regional sporting events, an annual pro rodeo that would draw entries from all across the West, large concerts, car shows or conferences, and any number of other seasonal (including Winter) events!

Through the hard work and dedication of the Board of Directors and Creede’s amazing community of volunteers, the project continues to make significant progress.
