August is not only Back-to-school time but also “Visit A County Fair In Utah Time” and there are plenty to go around. It doesn’t matter what you like to do or see, you’ll find it at a County Fair. Children delight in the carnival rides and all of the award winning livestock and handicrafts. Summer in Utah has much to offer and County Fairs are just a few of them! Take a look.
SALT LAKE CITY — Nine years after pioneers arrived in the Salt Lake Valley, The Deseret Fair was established to display homemade and homegrown products. That tradition continues today as ribbons are handed out for animals of all sizes, handicrafts and food. The winning entries at the county fairs advance to the Utah State Fair that will be held in September.
Leading up to the Utah State Fair in the fall are more than 20 county fairs throughout the Beehive State. Many events are free but check the website for prices to ticketed events.
