In 2014, the late Dr. Jim Rocconi, a lifetime fair board member and huge advocate for the Ouachita County Fair, was able to locate a partial of property that would one day be our permanent home.
The Ouachita County Fair was able to acquire nearly 37 acres on Highway 278 East, near East Camden for future construction of our complex.
In September 2018 the lease on our current property located next to the Camden Municipal Airport would expire, requiring us to relocate. The Camden Municipal Airport Commission was gracious for letting us finish the 2018 Fair Season and extend our timeline until the beginning of 2019 to removed the structures located on the property.
We were able to recently have 20 acres cleared off for Stage One of new construction. Plans and designs are currently in the works for the new site.
With the help of volunteers, local business owners, and county government we pray that the end result will be a great asset added to our community.
The Ouachita County Fair is more than just a weeks worth of entertainment in September. We want to provide our community with great family fun throughout the entire year which it so desperately needs and deserves.
