The Utah State Fair Corporation produces and manages the Utah State Fair. The organization was established in 1856 shortly after the pioneer settlers arrived in 1847. The Utah State Fair has operated continuously every year since. Most recently we celebrated our 167th Fair, which generated record attendance and revenue.
In addition to hosting the annual state fair, the corporation hosts upwards to 200 public and private events annually. The Fairpark is one of the most diverse and inclusive event centers in all of Utah and is reflected in our broad appeal. The Fairpark is home to the Days of 47 Arena, a state-of-the-art outdoor arena. And host the Days of 47 Cowboy Games Rodeo each July, a million-dollar rodeo.
The Fairpark is home to “two” vans skateboard parks both built to Olympic standards. And routinely host world championship events featuring the biggest names in skateboarding and host Tomy Hawks' big vert ramp contest each summer. Through the generous support to the Utah State Legislature and Governor’s office, we have invested over twenty-six million dollars in capital improvements over the last six years correcting decades of differed maintenance concerns. Most recently announced an ambitious two hundred-million-dollar master plan that includes a new exposition center, new livestock facilities, and hotel.
