The Montgomery County Agricultural Society Board of Directors is pleased to announce the groundbreaking for the Montgomery County Fairgrounds & Event Center, Saturday, August 19, 2pm at Arthur O. Fisher Park in Jefferson Township. Located at 5661 Dayton-Liberty Road.
“It’s a new and exciting beginning.” said John Yancik, President of the Agricultural Society Board. “After wrapping up our 165th year at the original fairgrounds on South Main Street this past July, we look forward to the future with this wonderful new, year-round facility.”
The original fairgrounds property was purchased in a joint venture with Premier Health and the University of Dayton.
The new event center and fairgrounds will include several climate controlled buildings, and the repurposing of existing structures on the Arthur O. Fisher Park property that encompasses over 150 acres.
The park proudly bears the name of Judge Arthur O’Neill Fisher whose credentials include prosecutor, Tuskegee Airman and trailblazer.
“Our new facilities will not only host the Montgomery County Fair, but will also be available for weddings, receptions, meetings, events, get-togethers, retreats, offer camping and other amenities year- round.” Yancik added.
The next Montgomery County Fair will take place July 9-14, 2018 at the new location.
