SALT LAKE COUNTY -- Despite rumors to the contrary, the Salt Lake County Fair will be held as usual this year.

Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon said, "A lot of people think that because of budget cuts that the fair wouldn't happen this year; but it's on, and so we invite all our citizens to come out and have some fun."

The 74th annual Salt Lake County Fair will run from August 11-14 at the Salt Lake County Equestrian Park in South Jordan.

Most of the activities will be free, including a concert by the Nitty Gritty Dirt band to kick off the festivities.

Mayor Corroon also announced Wednesday a photography competition that he and his family will judge.
