Boundary County Fairgrounds Facilities


    What most people consider the Boundary County Fairgrounds is actually an amalgam of facilities owned and managed by different agencies. The Fairgrounds Memorial Hall is owned jointly by several local veterans organizations with the Boundary County Board of Commissioners serving as its board of directors. The Fairgrounds Pavilion, better known as the slab, and all grounds north, south and east of it, including all the ball fields, are owned by Boundary County and managed by the Department of Parks and Recreation. The remaining grounds and buildings are owned by Boundary County and operated and managed by the Fair Board.

    Most of the Fairgrounds facilities are available for rent for special occasions subject to written rental agreements and fee schedules. Reservations for fairground facilities, the Memorial Hall and the Pavilion are made through the fair administrator at the Fair Board business office, located year-around at the fairgrounds (Building 3). A 25% rent deposit is required to reserve facilities.  To find out what dates are available, call (208) 267-7041.
