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 6 pm. Exceptions to meeting dates are January and February when the meetings are moved out one week to account for Federal holidays.
Citizen comments are officially taken at the beginning of each Fair Board Meeting. Please sign in if you have comments/issues to bring before the Board. Individual comments are limited to 3 minutes in length.
