First constructed in 1964, the Livestock Pavilion is a large two-story steel framed rectangular building flanked on the north and south by smaller, roofed, open steel framed expansions. The building is home to junior livestock shows during the Fair. During the winter, the facility is transformed into a youth baseball training facility opened to the public. Other events are held throughout the year, making this a year-round facility.
The first phase of renovation to the interior was completed in 2016 and included a concrete floor replacing the fifty year old dirt floor, roof insulation, fresh paint and cooling fans.
The second phase begins now! The Foundation is raising funds to renovate the north side of the Livestock Pavilion. The $120,000 project will allow for new asphalt, paint and water lines. The project will benefit the thousands who participate and visit the Fair and other events each year, especially junior exhibitors who house their livestock here during the Fair. This area will also be used as a pre-sale showcase area, allowing buyers and Fair patrons to view and visit with the youth exhibitors and their animals prior to the Junior Livestock Sale.
This capital campaign is about Fairgrounds enhancement and assuring that this area is safe and will be here for future generations. Never has it been more important than NOW to invest in the next generation of Agriculture. Join our efforts to renovate and preserve our historic Fairgrounds.
