Our Behind the Scenes Team

Through the dedication of our 25 member, all-volunteer, Fair Board the Brown County Fair grows and improves each year. Our board meets monthly as a large group and additionally within the committees they serve on to make each year better than the one before. As a result of our Fair Board's efforts, the Brown County Fair is a major source of entertainment for our area and a social event thousands of families across northeast South Dakota look forward to each year.


If you're interested in joining our fair board please complete our application to get started. Upon review, you'll be invited to meet with us to review board expectations and responsibilities and then your application will be presented to the Brown County Commission for approval.
