Join the Legacy!
We are a 501(c) organization committed to offering sustained assistance for the operation and enhancement of the Josephine County Fair and the Josephine County Fairgrounds.

Since our inception in 2008, we've been privileged to contribute to numerous projects and enhancements for the Fairgrounds. In addition to periodic fundraisers, including our Bingo events, we actively accept donations and provide tax-deductible receipts.

As we grow, our aim is to foster a strong sense of community around the fairgrounds, including establishing a network of Friends for future volunteer initiatives.

BE PART OF THE LEGACY - GET INVOLVED TODAY. Every volunteer, contribution, and donation brings us a step closer to a revitalized fairgrounds for community to enjoy for generations. Join us in making history!

Support for the Fairgrounds is facilitated through the Friends of Josephine County Fairgrounds, a recognized tax-exempt charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (EIN 26-3027262). Rest assured, any contribution you make directly benefits the foundation and does not become part of the County's budget. Your donations are diligently allocated towards enhancing the Fairgrounds, financing vital improvement projects, and acquiring essential equipment and assets for the grounds.
