Congratulations to Ashley Burns for winning a brick at the Cattle Barn!
The Livestock Pavilion was added to the Fairgrounds in 1902 as the first masonry building. A three-tiered roof with a memorable dome is help up with purple brick. Ventilated with a fan system, the foul air is pulled out as fresh warm air fills the pavilion.
An $800,000 renovation funded by the Prairie Meadow Racetrack and Casino provided a new roof for the aging building. Without the renovation, the Livestock Pavilion would not be able to be used year-round as it is today. During the Fair it is also used for livestock competitions and judging or the Governor’s annual Charity Steer Show.
