A Southern Utah Tradition for Over 160 Years
The Washington County Fair has been an integral part of the southern Utah community for over 160 years — ever since the early settlers of Washington City opened their homes to display agricultural products (livestock, corn, cotton, and garden vegetables), braided straw hats, moccasins made from tanned deer skins, and homemade articles from county-grown cotton and wool. Today’s fair still provides the backdrop for citizens to showcase local produce and agriculture, or to highlight the physical prowess of athletes who take on a raging bull or horse.
This year, the fair is excited to offer even more attractions, entertainment, and fun for everyone who attends. With two new events (a two-night rodeo and a special needs rodeo) and a performance by Grammy-nominated artist Walker Hayes, the 2022 Washington County Fair is proud to offer more opportunities than ever for the community to participate and come together.
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 2022 Washington County Fair. Please come and enjoy the many exhibits and attractions!
