What has diving dogs, bucking sheep, lots of music and elephants? Starting next week, it’s the Davis County Fair!
Located at 151 South 110 West in Farmington (just south of Farmington Station on Park Lane), it starts August 14th and runs until Saturday night. AND IT’S FREE ADDITION INTO THE FAIR!! However, parking costs $5.00 unless you provide 2 non-perishable food items to be donated to the Family Connection Center of Davis County Food Drive, then you do receive $2.00 off the price to park.
You’ll want to attend everyday just to not miss out on anything – and there’s really a lot going on!
Even though the fair doesn’t start until Wednesday, August 14th, the Open Horse Show will be Saturday, August 10th, at the Legacy Events Arena. Monday will have the Team Roping and Sorting. Tuesday night is barrel racing!
The fair will have a Petting Zoo, livestock showing – chickens to bunnies, cows, horses, pigs and sheep, a Midway (carnival), diving dogs, magicians, pie eating contest and ELEPHANTS just to name a few things featured at the fair!
You won’t want to miss the demo derby on Wednesday nor the Rodeo on Friday and Saturday. You’ll need tickets for both of these, but well worth the price of admission! Enjoy bronc riding, barrel racing as well as calf roping!
You’ll want to take time to go through the exhibits and entries while you’re at the fair, too. 4-H members have spent all year preparing for their projects to be judged. If you haven’t seen what they are doing in 4-H lately, you will be amazed how much technology and science they are doing now as well as cooking, sewing and showing livestock. Great group of kids with great projects!
