There’s something for everyone at the Arizona State Fair. First of all, a nod to our state’s important agricultural industry. Competitions for the best cattle, goats, swine, sheep…anything that can’t clean up after itself, abounds in designated buildings. For those who grew up in a rural environment, it’s like coming home.
Besides the midway for thrilling rides and challenging games, other attractions are offered daily. Tribute bands play just about nightly, mostly playing the songs of classic 70’s and 80’s rock bands. Can’t forget, muddy monster truck shows and competitive rodeos in the grandstand. Click here for more details on entertainment.
