Nothing makes you feel more like a child again than walking into a county fair. The combination of sights, sounds and smells set the stage for an all-American summer night.

The Salt Lake County Fair started in 1936 and over the past 82 years has supported family and community agricultural lifestyles. Placed strategically in August, the county fair has always been a time to celebrate the season. This annual event is held to showcase livestock, enjoy the summer’s harvest and dig back to family roots while creating memories.

The Fair offers the chance for Salt Lake residents to compete for the opportunity to participate in the annual Utah State Fair by entering their jams, jellies and other baked goods. Visitors can also attend free events teaching about developing agriculture, horticultural and sustainability skills and knowledge, and honoring Salt Lake County’s heritage.

Entering in the 82nd year, the fair continues to have small-town charm. Explore food trucks, see the animals, and you don’t want to miss the barrel racers Thursday night, the Friday night movie in the park or the Utah Junior Rodeo on Friday and Saturday night. Come celebrate summer at the Salt Lake County Fair, Aug. 9 to the 11 at 2100 West 11400 South in South Jordan.
