Since the late 1940’s the Summit County Fair has been held in Coalville and has become a signature County event that not only provides an opportunity to showcase the livestock and farming traditions, but a time for residents and visitors to come together as an extended community. Over the years the Fair has expanded and the 18-acre site is unable to accommodate the burgeoning event. Recently, the County decided to purchase land adjacent to the current fairgrounds, north of Chalk Creek, and has allocated approximately five million dollars for development and improvements including better parking accommodations, redesigning poorly-performing aspects of the site, and integrating the fairgrounds as part of a new and engaging park setting.
