Cattle Barn Campaign Project

Washington County Fair Board has voted for a new cattle barn facility to be built for the 2020 Washington County Fair. The current wooden facility was built over 60 years ago with many years of wear. The board has designed a steel structure facility for its longevity and endless capabilities of future functions.

Late October 2019 update:  The two old barns were razed in August and site work has been done.  The footings have been dug and cement work has started.  Fundraising has reached $459,000!!!  Thanks to all who have donated! 

If interested in donating, please click here for a brochure containing a donation form or contact a fair board member listed in the brochure.
