New Fairgrounds by 2019?


Darren Couch of the Hancock County Exposition board predicted that it is possible that the 2019 4-H Fair could be held at the new fairgrounds and Exposition center if the plans go as he hopes over the next couple of months.   The original 2003 project would have cost only $18 million to relocate the fairground to county owned property east of Greenfield.  That project died for various reasons.  The current proposal would relocate the fairgrounds to the same property as in 2003 but will cost $30 million dollars.   The new proposal would allow for the Horse and Pony Pavilion to be a part of the fair.  The new facilities would also include an exposition center  which could be used year around for other meetings and shows.  Couch emphasized that this proposal first and foremost about the fair and the youth of this county but not only about them.
