The horseshoe pitching tournaments are probably the best-kept secret at the Iron County Fair. The Southern Utah Horseshoe Pitching Association has been sponsoring their sanctioned horseshoe pitching tournaments at the Iron County Fair for more years than we can count. But they also hold tournaments for all you amateur horseshoe enthusiasts. Head on over to the Iron County Fair horseshoe pits and try your hand at tossing a few horseshoes.
The Southern Utah Horseshoe Pitching Association Sanctioned Tournament is scheduled for Saturday, August 30th at 10 a.m. and is for members of the Association. On Monday, September 1st at 12 p.m., the amateur competition begins and is open to everyone – all ages. Both events take place at the Iron County Fair horseshoe pits, located at the fairgrounds about half-way between the carnival and the entertainment tent – just follow the sidewalk.
