The fair takes place for one week every July, bringing back community favorites. Here, you can find your inner child at our carnival, feel like a cowboy at our 4-H/FFA static and livestock exhibits, escape with entertainment at a free show, and find inspiration for your garden at our floriculture and horticulture exhibits. Not to mention, there's lots of tasty food and treats to try — you won't want to miss our beloved pie auction!
In addition to providing amusement for our residents, the Davis County Fair brings visitors to our community year-round for the fair and off-season events. These visitors help support our local businesses and economy by staying in our hotels and motels, buying fuel from our gas stations, eating at local restaurants, shopping at our businesses, and more. We're always grateful for their stays with us.
Davis County Agricultural Society
The fair is organized and run by the Davis County Agricultural Society, a non-profit committed to providing the best possible county fair that educates the community about agriculture, horticulture, and varied arts and sciences. It also provides safe and well-maintained facilities for the community to showcase their products and skills and to hold public and private events.
The first Davis County Fair in 1854 was a one-day event held north of the square, on or near the site of present day's Success Bank. The fair was moved to its present-day location in Bloomfield. Today's grounds are 59 acres.
One of our most popular fair events began around 2000 by a local insurance agency as a fundraiser for the fair. That first year's proceeds from the auction were $395. Over the years, the managing of the auction was turned over to the fair board, and the event grew in popularity. In 2021, auction proceeds were $18,534, all counted as income for the fair. We will always have that local insurance agency to thank for starting this crowd-pleasing event.
