The Fairgrounds have two nice heated buildings with bathrooms for year-round use. There are buildings for winter storage of vehicles, boats, or seasonal equipment. The barns and showing ring have hosted state and district livestock shows and the horse arena has been used for training sessions and rodeos.

During the Fair, commercial exhibitors can be found in the Nordic Fest Building, in the North and South Exhibit Halls, under the Grandstand, and outside.

If you would like to exhibit at the fair,
contact Business Manager Edna Schrandt.
