NEW - Pre-Fair Event!
Join us Wednesday evening August 3rd at 5:00 pm and Thursday morning August 4th at 9:00 am to watch this event!
Team Penning and Ranch Sorting are sporting events that involve the movement of cattle on horseback by rider teams. Created to preserve that traditional skill sets of working cow horses and handlers, Penning and Sorting challenge modern riders and mounts to compete in a timed event to identify, move and pen specific cattle from a herd in a limited amount of time. Penning and Sorting are timed events that involve speed, precision and strategic planning in order to quickly and accurately cut and pen the cattle.
Ranch Sorting: Ranch sorting requires that two riders move a herd of ten cattle in numerical order from one round pen into a separate adjoining pen in sixty seconds or less. There is a twelve-foot opening between the two pens, and also one or two un-numbered 'trash' cows that are mingled throughout the herd. In both penning and sorting, the numbers do matter - so any cow that crosses the line, either out of order or carrying the wrong number, will result in a 'no time' for the team.
Team Penning: Three riders enter the arena. Thirty head of cattle are bunched together at the other end of the arena, numbered from 0 to 9, three of each number. The announcer gives a number to the team when the first rider crosses the start line, and the clock is started. The team must cut the three cattle with their number out of the herd and guide them down the arena and herd them into a pen within the allotted time-usually less than ninety seconds. The fastest time with the most cattle wins.

Attention rodeo fans - we have a huge announcement!John Payne aka The One Arm Bandit will be at our Western Night Rodeo!
Fans attending the Utah County Western Night Rodeo Thursday, August 4th will be treated to entertainment by the 15 time PRCA Rodeo Act of the Year.
The One Arm Bandit, John Payne, will bring his one-of-a-kind show to the Utah County Fair Arena in Spanish Fork. His award winning act has featured buffaloes, mustangs, mules and even zebras. Born to a rancher in Shidler, Oklahoma, the renowned cowboy entertainer actually died on June 12, 1973.
While tearing down a house for his dad, thinking the electricity had been shut off, John was electrocuted by 7,200 volts. According to his website - "After lying dead on the ground for approximately five minutes, he came to with his sidekick pounding on his chest and giving him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Gary Hughes delivered John back from the dead, but he was in bad shape." He spent five weeks in a Tulsa burn center. He lost his right hand in the accident, hence the name One Arm Bandit. We look forward to seeing one of the most sought after performers in the world of professional rodeo!

By definition a Demolition Derby is a contest in which drivers deliberately and repeatedly crash old cars into each other, on a racetrack or in an enclosed area, with the winner being the last vehicle still moving after all others have been disabled.
Competitors traditionally use full-size, American-made sedans and station wagons, especially those from the 1960s and 1970s which are larger, heavier, and have more robust frames than later vehicles.
Come see our drivers compete to the end and see who will walk away with the grand prize this year. The Utah County Fair Demolition Derby is the HOTTEST ticket in town!
The UTC Demolition Derby always sells out quickly each year and is one of the best ACTION PACKED entertainment opportunities that everyone in the family can enjoy!
