Public input sought for State Fair Advisory Committee meeting

The State Fair Advisory Committee is seeking public input to discuss the needs and issues pertaining to the State Fair's continued success, said State Sen. Jean Leising (R-Oldenburg), chair of the committee.

"The Indiana State Fairgrounds is a symbol of our state's heritage and continues to serve as a hub for residents to learn about and celebrate the Spirit of Indiana," Leising said. "It is important for the commission to strategically uphold this foundation, and receiving input from residents will provide insight on concerns regarding visitor experience at the fairgrounds."

The advisory committee serves as non-voting members of the Indiana State Fair Commission to provide legislative insight in ensuring successful representation of the state and partnership with the agricultural community.

The commission sets governing policy over the Indiana State Fair and provides strategic direction for the year-round operation of the Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center.

The advisory committee will meet at the Indiana Statehouse in room 233 on Thursday, Oct. 13 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Public comments will be received following presentations.
