Message From The President:

 

Thank you for your interest in the Northeast Florida Fair Association.  The Trustees are excited to present a fair opportunity for you and your family to enjoy activities to stimulate your senses – the sound (and smell!) of livestock, the aroma of grilling hot dogs and bar-b-que, squealing children on carnival rides, cheers from youth teams winning competitions, bragging women who have won the “big” ribbon for their pound cake, the boom-boom of the bass from the entertainment venue, the laughter and applause from the tent for the magician and on and on!  We want you to have a good time and discover facts about food and fiber produced in Florida.

 

Everything you enjoy on the fairgrounds is made possible with a 17 member, volunteer Board of Trustees.  The Board has a regular monthly meeting and called committee meetings as needed through the year.  The Fair is never “over” for the Board.  The divisions of the Fair are divided among the Trustees and each Trustee directs his committees of volunteers to ensure all facets of the Fair are ready on opening day.  The Trustees and committee members have various skills, talents, equipment, and contacts they generously contribute.

 

As President, I am humbled and grateful for the unselfish willingness of the Trustees to produce the Fair.  I am impressed with their ability to accept responsibility and fulfill our commitment for a quality Fair.  We are individuals with various backgrounds and obligations; but, when it comes to the Fair, we are one Board with one goal – a successful Fair.  Without the volunteer Board and committee volunteers, the Fair would have to hire a manager and staff and funds would not be available to make improvements to the grounds.  Please express your appreciation to the Trustees as you meet them on the fairgrounds.

 

Entertainment schedules, activities, livestock shows, and gate and midway specials will be posted on the website closer to opening day.  And this year, check our new sign for the latest information.

 

Sincerely,

Ralph Higginbotham
President, NEFFA
