A Southern Utah Tradition for Over 160 Years

For over 160 years, the Washington County Fair has been an important part of the southern Utah community — ever since the early settlers of Washington City opened their homes to display agricultural products.  Even though the locations, entertainment, and displays have changed throughout the years, one thing remains the same:  the fair is one event that brings the community together.

As southern Utah and Washington County grow, so does our county fair.  Now expanding from four days to eight, the 2024 Washington County Fair is excited to offer even more attractions, entertainment, and fun.  Not to diminish our traditional ticketed events of the demolition derby, our two-nights of rodeo or boxing (which is going 101 years strong!) or the ever-popular petting zoo or military wall of honor, but the increase in days, also calls for an increase in events!  That includes adding:  team roping, sorting, breakaway, and three nights of concert instead of one!  We are proud to present a 90s Country Night with Tracy Byrd featuring Little Texas on Wednesday, April 17, 2023 American Idol Winner Iam Tongi in concert on Thursday, April 18, and rounding out our night of concerts is the Eli Young Band on Friday, April 19.

Our thanks to all of the people who are involved with the Fair, for the many hours and talents they contribute. Susi Lafaele, along with the Fair Board have dedicated their time to ensure that the Washington County Fair is a continued success that can be enjoyed by all. The Washington County Commissioners would like to take this opportunity to invite the citizens of Washington County and all other guests to attend and participate in the 2024 Washington County Fair held April 12-20. Please come and enjoy the many exhibits and attractions!
