Corporate Sponsors Help Make Meigs County Fair Possible

MEIGS COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS, Ohio – As the 2019 Meigs County Fair gets underway, it is important to note that the event is not possible without sponsors.

While gate sales help, it isn’t everything to making the Meigs County Fair happen. This year the Meigs County Agricultural Society Board of Directors (more commonly known as fair board members) decided to change the structure of corporate sponsorship. The corporate sponsorship levels for the fair and various events are as follows: Grand Champion ($2,500 and above); Reserve Champion ($1,000-$2,499); Blue Ribbon Sponsor ($500-$999); Red Ribbon Sponsor ($250-$499); White Ribbon Sponsor ($100-$249).

According to a statement in the 2019 Meigs County Fair Premium Book, “The Meigs County Fair feels fortunate to have theses businesses that are willing to assist us in bringing family entertainment to our Fair patrons. Please join us in showing your gratitude by letting them know this on their designated day and events and throughout the whole year.”
