Tillamook County envisions a Fairgrounds campus that can host a variety of festivals and special events, the most of important of which is the Tillamook County Fair. While most of the campus should retain its historic, small-town character, the County desires a modern multi-use conference center that could one day be associated with a nearby hotel. The facilities should attract regional events and provide meeting spaces for community groups.
Fairgrounds improvements will:
•Serve the needs of the community and potential users
•Meet the needs of the Fair Board
•Preserve the historic structures and intent of the original founders of the Fairgrounds
•Improve visitor experiences
•Provide a sustainable blueprint to improve, locate, and develop facilities and infrastructure
The Strategic Plan proposes a general site organization and facility improvements to facilitate more intensive use of the Fairgrounds campus throughout the year and continue as the home of the Tillamook County Fair.
