Who do I contact if I want to Rent the Grounds?
Any rental of the grounds must be approved by the Fair Board. Please contact one of our Fair Board Members or send us an email so we can get you on our Agenda.
Is the Fair Grounds Public Property?
Contrary to popular belief, the Fair Grounds is Privately owned by the Shell Prairie Agricultural Association. It is not owned by the county or city and therefore is private property. Anyone wishing to use the grounds for any reason must contact the Board for permission.
Is the 4-H Program and the Fair the Same Thing?
Even though we work closely with the 4-H program we are two seperate entities. If you have any questions about the 4-h program or wish to become a 4-H member please contact the Extension Office.
