Box Elder County Fair



The fun begins at the Box Elder County Fair on Saturday August 20, 2016 with the Restless Heart concert. There are exhibit booths of the best down home crafts, food, artwork, photography flowers, fruits and vegetables. Wander through the small animal building to see rabbits, chickens and other exhibited animals. The kids will love it. The youth 4H and FFA livestock exhibit is one of the largest, if not the largest in the state, and there are activities going on all day long, every day. Performing groups entertain at the centrally located bandstand every afternoon and evening, and the best part is it is free. There is no admission charged to attend the fair. If you want to spend money there are business booths, craft booths, carnival rides, food stands, and a rodeo until 11 pm each night.
