An overall theme from conferences attended this year is that fairs are moving from concerts to tons of ground entertainment and attractions. It’s because of this that we have more incredible entertainment than we’ve had in over four years. We made sure to bring back fairgoers’ favorites, like the wood carver, hypnotist, and petting farm, but we’ve added numerous new options to our lineup.
Mad Chad will be juggling chainsaws, there will be 10’ robots walking around, The Birdman has a slew of exotic birds to see, Lighten Up Quartet will be singing and mingling, and Dangerous Feats of Comedy will wow crowds by performing daring stunts.
This year, bullfighting and Festival de la Familia will be new to our major entertainment schedule. We’re thrilled to partner with Bullfighters Only for the first time to produce 12 rounds of adrenaline-fueled entertainment you won’t want to miss!
Festival de la Familia is the result of realizing that we, as the fair and a community celebration, want to pay tribute to and connect with the Latin culture, as these individuals make up a large percentage of Weber County. Escaramuza Charra Sueno Dorado will perform, followed by dancing and a concert including Jesus Ojeda and Banda Renovacion.
The rodeo, horse pulls, livestock auction, and demolition derby are staples of the Weber County Fair and will remain as such. Last year’s derby sold out faster than it ever has, our rodeo crowd was huge, and we expect to do all of it again come August 10 – 13. Remember to get your tickets early!
