The Montgomery County Agricultural Society Board of Directors is pleased to announce the new site for ’The Montgomery County Event Center and Fairgrounds’ at in Jefferson Township. The board voted Tuesday, March 14, 2017 for the proposed first class facility.
“We’ve been working non-stop searching for the perfect fit, not only for the municipality where the event center is located, but the entire region in general and we’ve found it.” Says Tim Terrill, Vice President of the Montgomery County Agricultural Society.
“We’d like to thank the Montgomery County Commissioners and County Administrator Joe Tuss for their valuable assistance in this exciting venture for the future. The land at Fisher Park is virtually no cost to the Agricultural Society which was a big deciding variable. This means existing resources can be devoted to structures fitting various needs. It will be a multi-use, multi-purpose, top-notch facility for our entire community.” Terrill adds.
In 2016 Premier Health and the University of Dayton purchased the fairgrounds on S. Main Street which precipitated the new location search. The agreement states the board must leave the fairgrounds on S. Main Street by October 2017.
“One of the main things we’d like to express is this just isn’t a location for an annual five-day fair, but also a facility utilized throughout the year for events and programs bringing an economic boost to the area and region.” Tim says.
Plans call for state-of-the-art structures available for a variety of entertainment activities including 4H programs.
A reminder the Montgomery County Fair will take place July 10-15, 2017 at the current fairgrounds on S. Main Street in the City of Dayton.
“We hope families, friends and fans of the ‘Montgomery County Fair’ will come and experience our #FAIRwellOnMain. It will be wonderful time to reminisce and reflect on years of memories and we’re excited to make even more great memories at our future location.” Terrill says.
