POLK COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS NOT “JUST FOR THE FAIR “

 Maybe you have heard the rumors… If you thought the Polk County Fairgrounds is only used 4 days a year during the annual county Fair, you would only be partially right. However, there is so much more going on at the Fairgrounds.

Most nights during the summer, there is dog and horse training sponsored by the local 4-H organization. Projects like Archery and Rocketry make use of the wide-open spaces too! Many outside individuals or groups also use the fairgrounds for animal shows, animal sales, company picnics, weddings, graduation or birthday parties, family reunions and funerals. Over the winter months, private citizens rent storage space in many of the buildings, as well as outside storage.  There are even camping spots with electricity.

Come and enjoy the beauty and convenience that the fairgrounds has to offer.   Even after the 4 days of the Fair. You will be glad you did.

Many of the fairgrounds buildings are available for rent. Rates for rentable buildings can be found at www.polkcountyfair.com. Look under the Rental Fees tab.

To inquire or reserve a building(s) on the Polk County Fairgrounds, please scroll to the bottom of the page and contact the listed individuals for further information.
