Welcome to the Missoula Fairgrounds Events Center!
Do you want to be a part of making the 2017 Western Montana Fair great?
The newly-formed Missoula County Fair Event Committee is now recruiting seven regular members and one alternative member to serve staggered three-year terms. The purpose of the Fair Event Committee is to advise the Board of County Commissioners and represent the citizens of Missoula County in the planning and conducting of the annual fair event.
New, easier rental rates for 2017!
As part of the ongoing efforts to revitalize the Missoula County Fairgrounds, staff have developed a new pricing structure to better accommodate renters of the facility. The Board of Missoula County Commissioners approved the rates during their administrative public meeting on Jan. 18, 2017. Rates are effective immediately.
“The previous rate structure was very complex and required calculating the cost of every aspect of the rental, including utilities, vendor fees, and services from our staff,” Tom Aldrich said. “These new rates should be much more attractive for current and future renters as we now have everything built into a fixed rate, making planning and budgeting much easier. We are also doing away with the vendor fees we used to take from renters. We know very well that food and beverage sales make many events possible, so we are helping to maximize the potential of every event held at the Fairgrounds.”
Emily Bentley Hired as Director of Fairgrounds Development
After conducting interviews of three finalists, the Missoula County Commissioners have selected Emily Bentley as the Director of Fairgrounds Development. Ms. Bentley will begin her employment on January 30, 2017.
“I am thrilled and grateful for this opportunity,” Bentley said. “The Fairgrounds is a physical space that embodies the diversity we see in Missoula County itself, connecting our urban vibrancy with our rural heritage. I look forward to earning the respect of constituency groups and working with them to build a place that serves people from across the county.”
