Tooele City Fan Fest

Cheap Is The New Classy

My husband and I are trying to make a point to see more of the US over the next few years. We have talked often about traveling out west to see many of the natural landmarks like the national parks and the salt lakes. As many of you know, Jay and I were radio deejays before we started blogging, so music is one of our main interests. In my research for the perfect road trip out west, I found a really cool town, Tooele City, Utah, that has a great music vibe that I really want to check out soon.

The Best Places To Check Out The Tooele City Country Music Scene

Tooele Fan Fest – The Country Fan Fest is coming to Tooele County July 27th-30th. Some of my favorite country artist, Billy Currington and Thomas Rhett will be in the massive lineup. I have seen Billy Currington in concert and even got to meet him a few times :D and he puts on a fabulous concert. I also would love to check out Ned Ledoux’s show as I was a big fan of his dad’s. I have always wanted to attend a concert event that involves camping so this seems perfect! You can check out the full artist lineup here.

Tooele County FairThe Tooele County Fair is a great place to catch a great country music show, too. One of my favorite country music singers, Aaron Tippin, has performed there in this past and this year, Darryl Worley will be there on August 4th! Now I have , “I Miss My Friend” going through my head. :) When the full entertainment schedule for this year is released, you will be able to check it out here.

Deseret Peak Complex – Home of the Tooele County Fair, The Desert Peak Complex is a great place to catch a country music show and all of the things that go with it. I mean, country people love a good rodeo, fair or barrel race and you can see all of those things here. There are lots of things to do onsite like visiting the Aquatic Center, Benson Grist Mill, BMX Track of attending an event at the Convention Center. Be sure to check out the FREE Summer Concert Series each Friday night at 7:00 p.m. at the Aquatic Center Park which features popular local bands like Kindle Creek.

Daughters Of The Utah Pioneers – In neighboring Salt Lake City, you can take in a history lesson about the music of the entire region. The country music of today slowly evolved from many types of music like bluegrass, hymns and old western songs from years ago. So why not see how country music began during one of the Lesson, Music and Artifact events held monthly by the Daughters of The Utah Pioneers? This month’s song is “Wait For The Wagon” which was popular during the Civil War. Several versions appeared over the years and you can even purchase the song on their website.

Fast Facts About Tooele County

My husband comes from a town that is known for its salt deposits so he is very interested in this type of geographical location. Tooele County is home to the fastest land-speed records on earth as established on the Bonneville Salt Flats. And, of course, due to their natural beauty, The Great Salt Lake and Bonneville Salt Flats are some of the most iconic and most photographed landscapes in America. I have always wanted to see wild horses and Tooele County is home to one of the largest herds of free-roaming wild horses in Utah.
