Pageant, Horse show, etc., at the various events during the fair.
    • If you are selected in the royalty you must be available to represent the Summit County Little Miss Buckaroo by attending various activities throughout Summit County and the State in an effort to promote the Summit County Fair.  Some of these activities include –the Oakley 4th of July Parade and Kamas Fiesta Days Parade.  Attendance at all of these events is not mandatory for the entire royalty to attend (Princess and/or her Attendants), but at least one member from the Royalty must attend.   The Fair Committee understands that scheduling is sometimes difficult with other activities such as High School Rodeo events, etc. and participation at all events listed above may not be possible for each candidate.  It is expected that the Princess and/or Attendants work diligently to try to facilitate all events to insure that at least one person (or more if possible) of the royalty is in attendance to represent Summit County.  As part of her duties as Princess, the Princess will contact each member of the Royalty to determine which events each member is available to attend and then outline a schedule for attendance.  The Princess will then supply this schedule to the Fair Administrator.

      • As the Princess you will lose your title and be required to return all prizes.

  • Contestants can do simple lead changes or flying. Whichever you think you can do best. (At the discretion of the judges flying may be awarded more points)
  • There is no obligation if you are selected as one of the royalty to have matching blouses made for parades, rodeos and other obligations. We request that if you are selected as one of the royalty that you have your own individual style of blouse to wear for grand entries (not matching blouses).
  • We would like everyone to have fun!
