    I recently had my wedding reception in the Seaside Room and it was absolutely amazing. A beautiful new building with such cute décor/design, clean carpets, a kitchen and very comfortable chairs (which is a bonus). I would recommend this room to anyone who asked. The staff was helpful and easy to talk to and the price was just right.

    Over all the Fairgrounds was OK. But It would not be the first place for me to have my wedding at, but back in my days it was the only place we could afford. If it wasn't because of our caterer that made it work it would have been a nightmare. But it s a large place and the possibilities are endless. Good Luck!

The Event centers at the Fairgrounds are the best deal in town. Perfect blank slates for anyone to style to their heart's content! And, imagine string lighting in the oaks outside with a fire pit, Scotch and cigars! This is a wonderful option for larger weddings and corporate events.
