The Pierce County Fair is a cooperative effort of the Pierce County Government and the non-profit Pierce County Fair Association. Many community organizations, including Pierce County Extension, Pomona Grange, Pierce County F.F.A., Hill & Dale District Garden Clubs, and elected at-large members, form a working board of directors who organize and operate the fair each year.
The Pierce County Fair Association is a Washington State non-profit and is a member of the Washington State Fairs Association and the International Association of Fairs and Expositions.
Fair Director DescriptionDirectors are the Association's volunteer members that plan, coordinate, and operate the annual Pierce County Fair. These are citizens of Pierce County that simply wish to serve.
Some members are “At-Large”, which means they do not specifically belong to a member organization and are voted in annually. Other members are selected by their member organizations, such as 4-H, FFA, Pomona Grange, as well as the Garden Clubs and other organizations. These individuals act as the coordinators of their organizations.
ManagementThe Pierce County Fair Association employs three year-round employees, the Manager, Community Director, and Bookkeeper. Many temporary positions are hired by the fair annually.
