NEWS: MORE ELEVATORS AND RESTROOMS! The Marion County Fair Association has voted to install two new elevators and a restroom at the top of the front stretch grandstands. This is a $2 million investment into the facility. Construction will begin this fall and be completed for the 2024 season. The new elevators will be built on the west side of the current elevator.

“We’ve been talking about it for a couple of years," said General Manager, Jason Reed. "The need is clear with the crowd we have, especially during the Nationals. We have fans that need assistance, and we want them to have the best fan experience possible. We’ll be adding two new elevators and a restroom that is also full handicapped accessible. The restroom will be on the 'floor two level' on the back of the grandstand. Construction will begin later this year and be ready for the race season in 2024."
