An action-packed Saturday night marks the return of the Summit County Fair, which runs from Aug. 6-13. This year’s theme, “You’ve never been in a barn and it shows,” pays homage to the traditional, small-town county fair offerings. 

The fair brings in farm animals and beauty queens, a junior livestock sale and 4-H exhibition as well as a carnival midway packed with games, food and entertainment. The event primarily takes place in Coalville and is free to attend, except for two ticketed events.
