Deschutes County Seeks Applications for Fair Board


Deschutes County residents are invited to apply to serve on the Deschutes County Fair Board.

The Fair Board oversees operations of the Deschutes County Fair & Expo Center, a 320-acre event site located in Redmond. The Expo Center offers 200,000 square feet of flexible indoor event space, four livestock arenas, five barns, a full-service RV park and more.

This is an especially exciting time to be a part of the Fair Board, as potential land and capital expansion will be considered in the near future.

Fair Board members are appointed to three-year terms and are not paid for their time. They attend twelve meetings each year. Meetings are usually held on the second Thursday of each month at 3pm.

The Board of County Commissioners is seeking to achieve broad geographic representation among Fair Board members. Residents from all areas of Deschutes County are encouraged to apply.
