State Fair Annual Meeting

Posted: Updated:

It's been about four months since the North Dakota State Fair came and went away.

Today, the North Dakota State Fair held its annual meeting to recap all that happened at this year's 9-day event.

State Fair board delegates were present at the meeting as State Fair officials gave a report of the 2013 state fair and the expenses that went along with it.

The 2013 fair annual statement shows the fair brought in over 7.5-million dollars and profited over a million dollars after expenses.

When asked about the future of the North Dakota State Fair, the Fair Board President, Gary Knell(Ka-NELL), said a State Fair Center expansion could take place down the road.

(Gary Knell, NDSF Board President)"That's part of the vision with the City of Minot. With updating even the State Fair Center and making it a more convention-friendly atmosphere and also with the expansion would be other break out rooms, which is what is truly necessary to make it into a good convention hotspot."

Knell says after the expansion, more room would be available for livestock.

He also commented on the debate over the future of Pioneer Village, saying the next action to be taken may be in the courtroom.
