Food Court Press Release

Press Release:

The Fayette County Fair Association along with the City of La Grange has decided to postpone the construction of the new food court until after the 2024 fair.

We have experienced some unexpected hurdles that delayed the start of the project. Considering the timeline and with only a few months left before the activities begin on the fairgrounds, we believe it is best to start this project at the conclusion of the 2024 Fayette County Fair.

We are excited to have a display of our plans for the project at this year’s fair for the public to view.

We want to thank Fayette County and its officials for making this project possible, we also want to thank the City of La Grange for all they are doing to make this project the best it can be.

We look forward to seeing this project under construction in September and nearing completion by the end of the year. Our goal is to continue to make improvements that benefit our community and enhance your fair experience.

Finances of the Fair Association

The Fair Association budgets for future entertainment. Often rumors start that the fair has not been in the black since ZZ Top was here. The only years when the Fair Association didn’t have much income were the years hurricane Harvey tormented our county and the year Covid was prevalent. During those years there was no carnival or entertainment, and a very scaled back fair. Although those years were lean, the Fair Association continued to give twenty $1000.00 scholarships to graduating county seniors. The Fayette County Fair Association is financially stable and we continue to maintain the fairgrounds throughout the year. We are also able to pay the deposit on entertainment for the upcoming fair, even before one season pass has been sold.

The Fair Association budgets entertainment that will be affordable for the association and more importantly the patrons of the fair. Booking the "top forty" bands would cause serious price increases to the season pass price and daily prices. Our fair is not able to charge separately for the general fair and the entertainment. The Fayette County Fair is not just a venue for entertainment but a traditional county fair with something for everyone and a continued commitment to the education of youth in our county.

We are already planning for the 100th anniversary celebration coming up in a few years. The Fayette County Fair Association thanks you for your support and looks forward to seeing everyone in the future! Would you like to volunteer?
