The Linn County Fair Association held a ribbon cutting for the new Farm Bureau Pavilion on the Linn County Fairgrounds on Sunday, June 30.
“The Linn County Fair and fairgrounds are a center point of youth in agriculture in our county. As the voice of agriculture in Linn County we saw an area of need at the fairgrounds where we felt we could help make sure the future of agriculture is supported for generations to come,” said Rob Pangburn, Iowa Farm Bureau Federation.
The new pavilion, constructed in conjunction with Linn County Farm Bureau, replaces what was previously know as the “Free Entertainment Tent” during the Linn County Fair. In addition to having space for a stage and ample seating, the pavilion will also include restrooms, a mothers room, a first aid station and security office.
“The Farm Bureau Pavilion will be a great asset to the fairgrounds. With a hard structure building, it’ll be here for years to come, for the benefit of the fair and the youth of our county,” said Albert Martin, Linn County Fair Board President.
The pavilion is designed so it can be used year-round for events at the fairgrounds, such as weddings, conferences, etc.
