Wyoming State Fair accepts master plan

The Wyoming State Fair Board is excited to announce that they have accepted the master plan that was developed to guide the future success of the Wyoming State Fair.

The master plan was developed by Markin Consulting LLC and Associates and was accepted by the board during their quarterly meeting on Jan. 28. The goals of the WSF master plan are to increase year round and fairtime activities and revenues, as well as the redevelopment/reprogramming of the facility to meet current and future market demand. These broad goals and objectives serve as the underlying themes throughout the master plan.

“We are excited to accept this master plan because it provides a clear path forward for the fair and grounds throughout the year,” said Diana Berger, chairman of the Wyoming State Fair Board. “A strong plan is a necessity to the success of the fair and this plan gives us a direction for success into the future.”

The creation of the Wyoming State Fair master plan was a collaborative effort with feedback from numerous stakeholders including the Converse County Tourism Board, Converse County Commissioners, the Joint Agriculture Committee and more. The executive summary of the master plan is available at http://www.wystatefair.com and includes the most economically impactful components of the plan and summarizes the direction that the Wyoming State Fair intends to head in the coming years. Some of the highlights of the master plan include the findings of the market demand studies, the master plan guiding principles, and master plan projects and phasing.
