Exhibition Center Updates

If you’ve been following our blog since we first started it in January, you’ve probably caught mention of the Richard O. Jacobson Exhibition Center in at least a few different posts. We are extremely excited to be opening this state-of-the-art facility for this year’s Fair!   

Yesterday KCCI came to the grounds to report progress made on the building. The news crew and Dick Jacobson, the exhibition center’s largest donor, toured the facility to see the stage of construction just 3 months prior to completion. To watch the video coverage, click here.   

Also, check out some recent photos of the construction…this facility is going to be phenomenal!
