ABOUT THE BOARD
The Fair Board, with four standing committees including community representatives, works with the Benton County Fairgrounds Manager to oversee the business of the Benton County Fairgrounds including the annual Benton County Fair & Rodeo.
Fair Board members are appointed by the Board of Commissioners. The Fair Board also depends on the volunteer efforts of the Benton County Fairgrounds Foundation, Rodeo Committee and hundreds of 4-Hers, their parents and leaders and community volunteers.
Fair Board meetings are held monthly on the third Monday of the month in the Conference Room at 7 pm .
