The county's best fruits, vegetables, plants, and baked goods are judged in a variety of blue-ribbon competitions. The junior rodeo lets kids 5-13 show their ranching skills, while the extraordinarily popular demolition derby lets participants crush their opponents.
When: Typically in mid August
Where: Washington County Regional Fairpark - St. George, UT

Details: On the weekend of the fair (the second weekend in August), a parade featuring marching bands and horseback riders makes its way through St. George. For those not concerned about their waistline, the fair holds many eating contests for foods like pizza, pie, ribs, and ice cream.
While there isn't a general entrance fee to the fair, all cars must pay to park and some events require tickets. The Washington County Regional Fairpark is located at exit 16 (Hurricane) off I-15.
