AMADOR COUNTY FAIR FOUNDATION
Amador County took a lead in pioneering new ways to generate new funding sources with the establishment of the Amador County Fair Foundation in February 2009, led by community leaders such as Pat Crew, Ray Ryan, Stan Lukowicz, & others.
The Fair Foundation’s mission is to support and benefit the community buildings and educational projects of the Amador County Fair and to ensure the growth and viability of the Amador County Fair and the 26th District Agricultural Association.
The plan started with proceeds generated by Amador Four Fires Festival, augmented by several other new fundraising activities with all proceeds dedicated to urgent improvements. The newest improvement came in the form of a new working kitchen! Monark donated a “Demonstration Kitchen” to the fairgrounds. The Amador Four Fire Festival was instrumental in this donation being made.
The Amador County Fair Foundation and our Community Partners Jackson Rancheria, City of Plymouth , MP Associates and so many more have taken on the huge tasks of rebuilding the Wolin Arena into a roping arena, our horse show, Biagi stage midway restroom repairs, remodel & upgrades, electrical upgrades in the cattle barns, grandstands & installing gutters, refurbishing part of Frontier Town, rebuilding the front facade of the General Mercantile Building, just to name a few. They also purchased a new diesel-powered lawn mower for our grounds from the funds generated.
