20-plus county fairs in Utah for 2019

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.
