Most of the previous Pickaway County Fairgrounds structures were erected in the 1940s-1960s. Those facilities were long outdated, were in poor condition, and some had become unsafe and unusable. The rallying cry of our community for years was been to construct a new updated fairgrounds to give exhibitors, livestock and spectators the fair experience they deserve, as well as, be able to host year round events and activities for our community. The Pickaway County Agricultural Society and Pickaway County Commissioners partnered together to make this a reality! The Pickaway Agriculture and Event Center hosted the first Pickaway County Fair in June 2019! This project is funded largely by private donors who step up in a big way to support this important Pickaway County initiative. An empowered fundraising leadership team of passionate, enthusiastic community members was assembled to work together to engage local businesses, families and foundations to financially support the $12+ million project.
We have numerous commemorative donor opportunities and welcome you to get involved and support this immense effort. All funds will be managed through the Pickaway County Community Foundation. All giving levels welcomed! We appreciate your support!
