How does the oldest county fair in South Dakota keep growing and expanding? Community commitment and support is behind the latest addition to the Turner County Fair in Parker, South Dakota.

A new commercial building is being constructed to keep pace with growing demand from those who want to interact with over 80,000 attendees who take in the annual event.

Turner County Fair will unveil and host a ribbon cutting for the new Farm Bureau Commercial Building on Wednesday (July 26) at 10:30 AM at the fairgrounds in Parker.

This all according to South Dakota Farm Bureau (SDFB). Over half the funds of the new building were contributed by Farm Bureau.

Krystil Smit, SDFB Executive Director, said,

The new Farm Bureau Commercial building at Turner County Fair fits well within SDFB's 100-year commitment to rural communities throughout the state and underscores the organization's dedication to our youth, 4-H and FFA organizations, and farmers and ranchers. SDFB wants to be part of the growth and vibrancy of the state's oldest county fair to ensure a strong future for youth activities and ways for farmers and ranchers to interact with consumers and community members. SDFB is proud to be taking part in the impact this new building will have at Turner County Fair.

The new Farm Bureau Commercial Building at Turner County Fair will be ready for the public to enjoy during this year's fair, August 14-17.
