EVANSTON — The 2020 Uinta County Fair kicks off tomorrow, July 30, and runs through Aug. 6, with a full slate of fair activities and events for exhibitors and visitors to enjoy.

This year’s theme “All American County Fair” helps to set the tone and attests to the overall feelings of patriotism of Uinta County residents.

Tomorrow’s events include open class exhibits, judging interviews, and the day is topped off at 7 p.m. with the music of Charley Jenkins and Cale Moon in a free concert.

Jenkins bio includes, ““Born country?” Exactly!!! Charley Jenkins has country roots that run deep. He was raised on a farm in Eastern Utah where he learned how to rope, ride and work hard. Life on the Jenkins farm revolved around cows, horses and of course rodeo. Country music is all about a real cowboy’s life like Charley’s. ‘Country is who and what I am. It is only natural for me to sing the songs that I love and relate to.’”

As for Moon, his info includes the following, “Award winning actor, model, vocalist, and entertainer. Professional touring entertainer, country singer/songwriter/guitarist, who performs shows all across America…with his wide vocal range and heartfelt original songs, backed up by his impressive guitar skills."

The Uinta County Fair, long a tradition in the county, serves as the showcase for those in 4-H, FFA, open class and more.

A rodeo next Monday, playing to the younger cowboys and cowgirls, is only one of the events on a day-full of activities. All of next week, there will be activities each day to entice young and old, whether it be a homemade ice cream contest, laser maze, tomahawk throw, a trip through the exhibit hall, kids games and more.

The junior livestock sale brings out the dollars for exhibitors as they show their 4-H and FFA exhibits they group has worked on all year getting them ready for the auction ring.
