Our New Pavilion
Last month we saw the newest addition to the Montcalm County Fairgrounds. This pavilion was the result of a generous anonymous donation and the hard work done by members of Montcalm County Horse Leaders.
The structures main purpose will be to serve as an escape from the weather, as well as hosting events. The pavilion is handicap accessible and provides electrical outlets to fairground patrons. Along with these features the pavilion will also provide a shaded area to view events as well as tables for eating. It is expected to be a highly beneficial addition to the fairgrounds.
This is just one example of what has been achieved on the fairgrounds through volunteer efforts. The Montcalm County Horse Leaders should be commended for the dedication and pride they have displayed through their efforts on the fairgrounds.
On behalf of the Montcalm County Fair Association we say thank you to the Montcalm County Horse Leaders for this and all they have done.

Post Fair Update
Thanks to all attendees, donors, sponsors and other supporters that made it out to this years fair. We had a lot of fun celebrating our 80th year with all of you. This was an exciting year for us. It marked the 12th year of our Kids Day Expo, which was a huge success with over 1200 individuals joining us for the event. We also saw the addition of the brand new TSC activity tent, another hit among fairgoers. Along with all this we also had a great turnout for all of the other great 4-H events. None of this would have been possible without the support of all of you.
