2017 Chairman, Joe Maniaci, presented the Fair's annual report Thursday, January 11. He was quick to thank our sponsors, volunteers, and fairgoers, giving an extra shout-out to the City of Washington and the Parks Department. There are so many groups, businesses, and individuals who help make our fair the great success it is.
Despite some challenges (rain, Lynyrd Skynyrd cancellation, Motocross cancellation, paved surface needed for 9/11 exhibit), the Fair Board and partners rose to the occasion time and again. The result was five fun days in Fairadise, and and a local economic impact of over $1 million!
