Lincoln County seeks county fair board applicants


News release:

April 19, 2024 – The Lincoln County Board of Commissioners is seeking applications from citizens interested in serving on the Lincoln County Fair Board.

The Lincoln County Fair Board oversees the planning, preparation and production of the Lincoln County Fair and associated events and activities. The current three-member board is seeking additional board members to help build capacity and manage the annual fair event.

Often referred to as a “working board,” potential applicants should be willing to participate in preparation for, during, and in closing down the fair event. Additionally, Fair Board members need to meet once per month during the calendar year. As Lincoln County’s Annual Fair and the Fair Board continues to grow, the Board of Commissioners desires that it reflect the community with which it is surrounded while embracing the values of its traditional roots.

Candidates should consider how they fit into the following categories of interest: • Land-based agriculture • Youth/education • Exhibitors/vendors/local businesses • Tourism promotion/visitor services • Ocean science/commercial fishing • Recreational fishing/other ocean use sectors • Volunteer management • Marketing/promotion/event coordination • Other interests as determined by the Board of Commissioners.

There is no specific requirement that all the identified interests be included on the fair board at the same time, and board members need not be employed or a working professional in a particular category. Rather, board members should have the desire and passion to see the Annual Fair reflect the diversity of the community’s interests and stimulate curiosity through education and activities that showcase life and industry in Lincoln County

Applications can be filled out at If you need a paper application, please contact the Board of Commissioners’ office at 541-265-4100 to make arrangements. For questions, please contact Public Information Officer Kenneth Lipp at [email protected] or 541-265-4100.
