It’s fair and rodeo time in Cache County! But if the fair isn’t your thing, there’s still plenty to do and see this weekend.
Cache County Fair and Rodeo
The Cache County Fair and Rodeo grounds are a beehive of activity this weekend. Thousands of entries in dozens of categories are judged, from animals to home arts, 4-H to photography. And it’s in a new layout with the new Cache County Events Center. There is also live entertainment on the main stage each night, carnival games and rides from Brown’s Amusements, and of course the rodeo each night Thursday, Friday and Saturday with pre-rodeo starting at 7:30, and the main rodeo starting at 8.
See contortionists in a bubble high above the air, high-flying acrobats and maybe even a dinosaur at Cirque Italia. It’s all performed over a 35,000 gallon water stage at the Cache Valley Mall Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Autism Support Services: Education, Research and Training – also known as ASSERT – is celebrating its 15 year reunion celebration Friday at 5:30 p.m. The celebration will be held south of the new Sorensen Legacy Foundation Center for Clinical Excellence building at USU.

Or you could hear another type of ensemble performance. The Cache Theatre Company presents The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in the Utah Theatre.
