In 2011, the Elkhart County 4-H Fair Board acquired additional acreage (to total 384) for $1.4 million dollars. In 2012, due to generous community support, we were blessed to have that debt paid in full. In 2013 and 2014, Phase 1 of the Land Development Projects were identified. These $1.2 million dollars’ worth of improvements were selected to improve and enhance our faithful guests’ experiences.
- Emergency siren and public address system;
- Two additional restroom facilities;
- Additional parking, interior roadways and tram routes; and
- Grandstand seating expansion and improvements
These completed projects were all unveiled at the 2014 Elkhart County 4-H Fair to the 280,000+ guests that visited during our annual 9-day Fair. All much needed and truly appreciated improvements to our facility, these were all very well received.
In 2015, we:
- Installed fiber optics and wifi for use by 4-H families, Fair guests, Fair vendors and the many RV Rallies that the Fairgrounds hosts each year;
- Significantly widened the Gate 7 entrance,
- Added temporary Fair week campsites; and
- Constructed a timber bridge that crosses Rock Run Creek.
These projects were unveiled prior to July 24, 2015, the opening day of the Elkhart County 4-H Fair.
In March, 2016, the 3rd Annual Elkhart County 4-H Fair Board Adult Prom Fundraiser was held. It was announced that evening that all net proceeds from that event would be designated to the permanent roadway that will cross the Rock Run Creek bridge and lead to a new and much needed additional entrance and exit point on C.R. 36. In addition to the road, security features including fencing and lighting will be installed in the immediate future.
