This time of year we all tend to reflect on what we have accomplished and begin setting goals for the upcoming New Year. Each year our staff conducts this same mental exercise. We find ourselves in meetings, meetings and more meetings…with who you say? Our fair-time staff, commercial exhibitors, competitive exhibitors and supervisors; Fair vendors that include companies like the tent rental company, sound and light companies, cleaning services, port-a-pot suppliers (who would think) and many others.
As we reflect and plan know that we make every effort to make the Kansas State Fair experience positive for all. For those of you who haven’t visited for a while, we’ve come a long way baby! But we don’t rest on our laurels we continue to improve and become better. We encourage our fair friends to join in the conversation. You can do so through this blog, facebook, and twitter or just stop by and see us.
Have a Happy New Year!

If only we had a $1.00 each time we are asked, “You Work Year Round?”. Not only does it take our staff a year (or more) to plan the annual Kansas State Fair but we host over 400 events on the Fairgrounds during the Non-Fair months. In 2012 we hosted 97 banquets/parties, 30 meetings, 28 trade shows, 66 wedding receptions, 8 RV Rallies and this list goes on…. So as you can see when we have 1125 “event days” scheduled our staff continues to remain busy assisting our guests.
