The Golden Spike is a great spot in American history where east and west cane together, our country forever changed! Ghost towns now line the terrain, there's beautiful landscape and a chance to see replicas of the original locomotives. Very cool!

The Golden Spike Arena is the main structure on the Weber County Fairgrounds. It was built to host the annual Golden Spike rodeo, but also hosts a variety of other events and expos. The fairgrounds has ample and close parking for all events.

Came here to see the rodeo, and apart from the smell of manure (!), it was a good space to hold it in. It's just basically like a large space which can be filled with various events, but it has lots of free parking, seating etc.

Always a funky, fun, family event venue. We have been here for rodeos, Germanfest, antique auctions, agricultural and roller derby! Clean bathrooms. Spacious. Good parking - easy place to visit.

Very interesting history on the railroad and the work involved progressing to the present day. Very worth taking your children to see.

We have gone to indoor and outdoor demolition derbies, rodeos and circus here. In August they hold the Weber County Fair with lots of things to do. Next, to the arena are several soccer and softball fields and a playground.

We went to a rodeo here and enjoyed it very much. All the seats were good, and there was enough space for our 3 year old to stand by the railing to see better without obstructing anyone else's view. You felt like you were close to the action without being close enough to get pelted by dirt clods. We will... More

This is a very nice and cozy arena. The indoor is fine for big events and there aren't any nose bleeds seats The outdoor arena has lots of beautiful views of the Wasatch Mountains.
