Commercial & Concession Rental

  • For a very resonable cost, your business or organization will be able to “reach into the community” at this year’s fair. The fair gives you the opportunity to market your products or services to folks from all around Jackson and surrounding counties. Many groups find that they have more contact with the publoic during the fair than they do during the balance of the year. As usual, special promotions have been developed to help deliver fair-goers to the commercial and concession areas. Please consider this an open invitation to participate in this great event.
