FARMINGTON -- A mix of stingrays, a rising country singer, a Beach Boys tribute band and a few attractions back by popular demand will make this year's Davis County Fair a "Fairadise."
Davis County Fair Coordinator Megan Hatch revealed the "Fairadise" theme Tuesday to the Davis County Commission.
Hatch said she wanted to reveal the theme and introduce the four-day fair, scheduled for Aug. 15-18, before leaving her county job at the end of the week. Hatch is moving with her husband to Southern California.
The fair will be at the Legacy Events Center, 151 S. 1100 West, Farmington.
Some of this year's fair highlights include a live stingray exhibit, available throughout the four-day event; an Aug. 18 performance by Endless Summer, a Beach Boys and Fifties and Sixties music tribute band; and an Aug. 16 concert by country star Katie Armiger.
The cost for the Armiger concert is $8.50 per person. The rodeo and demolition derby also are ticketed events, Hatch said.
Other events back by popular demand include the two-day Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association rodeo; the demolition derby; Davis County's Got Talent competition; and the diving dogs, Hatch said.
Because of the popularity of the diving dogs event, which is free to the public, Hatch said, additional shaded grandstands will be made available this year, she said.
"Obviously there is something for everybody," Davis County Commissioner Bret Millburn said of the collection of entertainment.
Admission to the county fair is free, but there is a $5 charge per vehicle for on-site parking. That charge is $3 for those who bring two cans of food to donate to the area food bank, Hatch said.
