Following a meeting of the Summit County Fair Board last week, the County has announced they’ve cancelled events for this year’s Fair.   There are just a couple of exceptions.

A press release from the county on June 11th said the cancellations are due to the economic and health concerns resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The cancellations include the PRCA Rodeo and Rodeo Queen Contest, the Demolition Derby, Parade, Carnival, the Little Buckaroo Rodeo and Princess Contest, the Tour de Sunrise, and Exhibits for Poultry, Rabbits and Home Arts.

Summit County

Businesses around Park City and Summit County are in a re-opening phase.

But in the meantime, many residents are wondering what happens to mass gatherings or events in the next five or six months.

Summit County Manager Tom Fisher says, bottom line, they won’t happen.    Or if they do, you will see something very different.  

Fisher told KPCW that the county’s objective over the past two months has been to lessen the spread of the virus.   To do that, they’ve taken some major steps.
