    I'm glad you got to go to one of the shows! They are very fun!

    Here is a link to a general calendar for the Salt Lake County Equestrian Park in South Jordan: http://www.slco.org/calendar/month.cfm?siteID=2. Maybe looking through it you can find something? Though the show might not have been added to the calendar yet??

    I have never heard of a show being held there, but maybe there is a new one starting or maybe someone was referring to the Salt Lake County Fair, which has a chicken show as part of it. I went to chicken show within the fair two years ago there. It was held mid-August & was pretty good, though smaller than the UFP club shows.

    There is a list of other shows from this region on poultryshowcentral.com at http://www.poultryshowcentral.com/Mountain.html.

    I see there is a "Utah Classic SC" being listed for the the Utah State Fairgrounds for February, but I've never heard of it before.

    I've heard the Four Corners Poultry Assoc. Show in New Mexico is a very good one & is big. The people in charge of it are very friendly & nice, too.

    When I was looking at the Utah show listings on poultryshowcentral.com, I saw it listed that the UFPA show was supposed to be held Oct 27-28. But I'm thinking it was already held Oct 12-13. Is that right?
    I will send them an email to request the correction.
    Do you know what the dates will be for the Spring UFPA show in March?

    Note to anyone who may be interested in Utah chicken shows in general:

    The Utah Fancy Poultry Association holds two shows every year at the Davis County Fairgrounds north of Salt Lake. They are in March & October.
    There is a UFPA Show Information website with info on these at: https://sites.google.com/a/larsencreek.com/ufpa/Home

    Thank you for the links. I thought it was at the equestrian park but I may be wrong. Yes the dates on the website are wrong the show has already occurred.

    The site admin wrote back & has now corrected the dates. Anyone who is looking for a good place to find info on poultry / chicken shows nationwide, this is a good site to look up:
    PoultryShowCentral.com

    If anyone finds out the dates for the Spring 2013 show of the UFPA, please will you post them here. Thanks!
