Jay Norgel, the new facilities manager, has worked with the Fair Park for about 10 years. “The fairgrounds is big, 133 acres total, but it has a down-home atmosphere and a very ‘mom-and-pop’ feel,” said Norgel.

Armed with a weed trimmer, Norgel was knocking down patches of weeds and growth around outbuildings.Washington Co Fair Park


“This new crew has a top-notch skillset where we can fix what’s broken and fabricate and make it a lot nicer. We’re definitely going to tidy it up and maintain the property for incoming events.”

Norgel said the staff, “felt like family” and it was easy to come to work.

“We’re super excited to see what we can do with it,” he said. “We can give you a big facility with attentive service and we can cater to your special needs.”
