The Utah State Fair does not assume responsibility or liability for electrical failures of any kind, for damage to equipment/property caused by drops or increases in power supply, low voltage, or power surges and shall not be liable for loss of profits or revenue, loss of use of equipment, cost of capital, cost of temporary equipment, or for any special, indirect, or any damages due to interruption or fluctuation in service on the grounds.
Correspondingly, all exhibitors and concessionaires expressly agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Utah State Fair Corporation, its members, employees and contractors from such claims. In no case will the Utah State Fair be held responsible for loss of profits, revenues or loss of equipment.
Each 10' X 10' booth location receives 1 outlet producing 5 amps of 110 volt electrical power included in the price of the booth. Any additional electrical power requirements must be requested on the Commercial Exhibit Lease Agreement or Concessionaire Lease Agreement and paid for with the final booth payment. If not indicated on the Lease Agreement, any requests for special power must be made in writing by August 16th. Any request after August 16th will be subject to additional charges and will need to be paid by the exhibitor/concessionaire directly to the Administration Office before additional service will be provided. Exhibitors/Concessionaires will be charged $20.00/quarter hour minimum for electrician services, charged the cost of any material required plus 15%, and charged for the additional power as listed below, for service not requested by the August 16th deadline.
Listed below are the charges for additional power. For example, one light bulb is between 60 and 100 watts. Therefore, five 100 watt bulbs equal the 500 watts or 5 amps of power allotted per booth. Once the Fair opens, it will be extremely difficult to get additional power.
Vendor 110V Service
5 amps $10
10 amps $25
20 amps $45
30 amps $60
Vendor 208V Single-phase
30 amps $115

All Exhibitors and Concessionaires must provide proper sized and approved cable (up to approximately 100') to connect to an existing service outlet, or pay for any equipment/materials needed for the hookup. Extension cords must be for heavy duty use and appropriate for wet/damp locations. All exhibitors and concessionaires must use GFCI-protected cords. The Fairpark reserves the right to refuse to connect any electrical service to equipment that is not considered safe.
The wire sizes required for each size of electrical service (in accordance with National Electrical Code) is as follows:
|Size of Service||Minimum Wire Size||Size of Service||Minimum Wire Size|
|30 Amp||#10||60 Amp||#6|
|40 Amp||#8||100 Amp||#3|
|50 Amp||#6||125 Amp||#1|
| || ||200 Amp||3/0|
Fairpark Management will inspect all leased space during the Fair to ensure no one is using more electricity than they have been authorized. In the event it is found an exhibitor or concessionaire is knowingly using more power than authorized and paid for, the exhibitor or concessionaire may be fined up to $ 300 and/or the booth closed.
A $200.00 fine and/or expulsion from the Fair will be assessed to anyone found entering into a Fairpark electrical panel or tampering with electrical lines or outlets in any way.
Electricians have been instructed not to provide service to any appliance, trailer or panel that is not properly grounded. Electricians will not provide service to non-UL approved equipment or faulty or hazardous equipment. No wiring will be done in individual stands or trailers by State Fair electricians.
At no time can an exhibitor or concessionaire make any additions or modifications to electrical services without Fairpark Managements approval. See 'Construction and Improvements'
All electrical appliances must be turned off no later than 8 a.m. the Tuesday after the State Fair ends. Electricians will disconnect all electrical services to exhibitors and concessionaires Tuesday at 8 a.m.
Any exhibitor or concessionaire needing electrical service beyond 8 a.m. the Tuesday after the State Fair ends will need to make arrangements with the Administration Office and will be charged an additional fee for the service extension.
Gas service is only available to concessionaires located in the Utah's Own Food Court. Concessionaires are responsible for the maintenance of the gas line(s) from the point where they hook into the Fairs connection. If there is no service available in the concessionaire's location or if the service needs to be relocated, the concessionaire will be responsible to pay for any cost associated with the addition or relocation. At no time can an addition and/or modification be done without Fairpark Managements approval. See 'Construction and Improvements'
Fairpark Management does not assume responsibility or liability for gas disruptions of any kind, for damage to equipment/property caused by disruptions and shall not be liable for loss of profits or revenue, loss of use of equipment, cost of capital, cost of temporary equipment, or for any special, indirect, or any damages due to disruptions in service on the grounds.
Water and Sewer
Exhibitors and concessionaires needing water for operations must bring sufficient and compliant water hose(s) to connect to the nearest water source. Most water sources are within 100' feet of most locations. However, it is ultimately the exhibitors and/or concessionaire's responsibility to have the required length of hose to access water. Cost for Water and/or Sewer is $30.00.
If an exhibitor or concessionaire installs a water hose over a walkway, street, or through another exhibitors/concessionaires space, it must be approved by Fairpark Management and covered using an approved method to prevent any possible accidents that may occur.
Any exhibitor/concessionaire that connects to an outside water source must provide a hose bib vacuum breaker.
By Law, all gray water must be dumped or pumped into a sanitary sewer drain (not a storm drain). If an exhibitor/concessionaire is not aware of the location of a sanitary sewer drain or is unsure of the type of drain they are planning to use, it is the exhibitors/concessionaires responsibility to seek Fairpark Management for clarification.
If sanitary sewer is not available near the exhibitors/concessionaires space, it is the responsibility of the exhibitor/concessionaire to obtain and service the necessary holding tank.
Any exhibitor/concessionaire found dumping into/onto anything other than an authorized sanitary sewer drain will be assessed a minimum of $ 300 and required to pay all costs associated with damages to include, but not limited to, labor and materials.
Fairpark Management does not assume responsibility or liability for water or sewer disruptions of any kind, for damage to equipment/property caused by disruptions and shall not be liable for loss of profits or revenue, loss of use of equipment, cost of capital, cost of temporary equipment, or for any special, indirect, or any damages due to disruptions in service on the grounds.
Once a utility is installed, it becomes the property of the Utah State Fair and will remain under the control of the Fair. The exhibitor/concessionaire will continue to be responsible for the maintenance of the service from the point where they are hooked into the Fairs service connection for as long as the exhibitor/concessionaire uses the service. Fairpark Management reserves the right to shut off or disconnect the utility when it is determined by Fairpark Management that the service does not meet the Fairs standards, or if any relocation is deemed necessary.
