The Utah State Fairpark is the process of recreating its master plan to better support its organizational mission to serve as a permanent, year-round destination that attracts neighbors, event-goers, and hundreds of people each day. As part of this master planning process we will conduct a series of public engagement activities including an online survey and virtual idea generation. Please visit the project website to share your input and help us shape the Future of the Fairpark.
The Utah State Fairpark and event center offers modern event facilities in a historical setting. In addition to hosting the annual Utah State Fair, the Fairpark hosts a variety of other events including skateboarding competitions, concerts, rodeos, conferences, weddings, company meetings, sporting events and the newly launched International Market. In addition to hosting indoor and outdoor events of all sizes, the Fairpark is also home to the Vans Skateboard Park, a branch of the Utah State Driver License Division, statewide auctions and offers seasonal RV and boat storage.
In 2016, the Utah State Legislature appropriated $10 million for infrastructure improvements to support the enhancement and greater utilization of the Fairpark. The State's vision for increasing activation of the Fairpark is centered around a year-round, multi-use development and incorporates and embraces the Jordan River Trail and surrounding neighborhood.
A 2019 Public Market Feasibility Study established a baseline for how the Fairpark could be better utilized as a year-round community amenity. It also provided insight into how the community envisions the Fairpark's future.
The Utah State Fairpark is recreating its master plan to better support its organizational mission to serve as a permanent, year-round destination that attracts neighbors, event-goers, and hundreds of people each day. The master plan will incorporate elements from past vision plans and public feedback to identify how the Fairpark can provide better service and more opportunity to the local community. Engagement activities include an online survey and virtual idea generation (below) as well as a series of small group meetings. A collection of possible scenarios for the future of the Fairpark will be presented to the public and community leaders to provide additional feedback. The final master plan will be proposed this fall 2021.
