DUCHESNE COUNTY FAIR
In early August, farmers, ranchers, housewives, bronc busters and bull riders convene in Duchesne City, the county seat of Duchesne County, for the annual Duchesne County fair.
The week-long fair actually begins with some competitions during the week leading up to the main events.
Two royalties preside over the fair: the Rodeo Royalty and the Miss Duchesne County Royalty. You will see them at nearly all events, helping out and giving back to their communities.
Guest performers, a demolition derby, a motor cross fun runs, a livestock auction, 4-H events, cotton candy, a carnival midway and evenings filled with rodeo competition are all part of the festivities.
A parade on Saturday begins the final evening at the end of fair week and fireworks set off from the high bluffs above the fair grounds send fair-goers home, happy until next year.
