The event which some say will be the best ever will draw thousands of residents and people of all ages and it will all be taking place here at UVSC at the McKay Events Center. For 30 years, Spanish Fork has held the rights to have the Utah County Fair in their city. However, a decision to start charging $25,000 for use of the fairground facilities prompted the county to look into moving the fair from the south end of the county to Orem'. "We're trying to rebuild enthusiasm for the fair anyway, and this could be a . good opportunity to see if it works better being centrally located," said Commissioner Dave Gardner. Originally, Utah County agreed to pay $10,000 a year for 10 years to help build the facilities in Spanish Fork.

Larson who ran with team UVU ended up with a new set of colleagues Friday night. Larson was voted in with 934 votes the fair each year without charge. That agreement expired in 1979 and was extended to. 1992, when it expired again. For approximately $14,000, Utah County can not only hold the fair inside and use the parking lots outside, but set-up and take-down costs as well as security are all covered in the fee." Marilyn Toone, director of the fair said the advantages to holding the fair in Orem include a more visible location and easier access from the freeway which may mean more people than the usual 5,000 to 6,000 fairgoers. She said the fair will be different this year because it will be organized to attract families and young adults. "We will keep traditions but it will be different due to the new location and the . opportunity to bring in new attractions such as concerts" Toone said. Rhett Evans, events manager for the Events Center said that there are other advantages to having a portion of the fair indoors.
