Carbon County Fairgrounds
The Carbon County Fairgrounds are perched atop a hill overlooking the City of Price and parts of the Castle Valley. The early morning view from the horse arenas is breathtaking as the sun rises over the West Tavaputs Plateau to the east and beams it rays across the Castle Valley. To the west Pinnacle Peak is in full view against the grey/blue mountains that are home to large natural gas reserves. Beyond those mountains loom the Manti-LaSal National Forest situated on the Wasatch Plateau.
The fairgrounds are home to the Carbon County Softball Complex complete with four fields for both fast and slow pitch softball, electronic scoreboard, concession area and a play area for children. The Ice Skating Pond measures 170 ft x 100 ft. and is available based on weather conditions.
