The Iron County Fair is pleased to welcome back our three amazing emcees from last year. These men are dedicated, hard working, and … related. They are all brothers-in-law.
Lom Guluka is our emcee for the en­tertainment tent. He is an accomplished announcer and a talented comedian. Lom keeps the whole crowd laughing in be­tween acts with his jokes and humor. We are very fortunate that he is taking time out of his busy schedule to come back and entertain us this year.
Jared Wilcken and Gary Taylor are our emcees for Iron County’s Got Tal­ent. They do a great job keeping everyone straight and on schedule.
Jared and Gary are each very musical in their own right and bring life and fun to the contest.
