There will be a grassy area in front of the stage to sit, relax and enjoy the music. With these concerts, a poetry contest will be held, giving young people of the Payne County area a chance to recite cowboy-themed poetry. According to Darrell Stiles, Payne County Fair board chairman, the new attractions and events characterize Oklahoma’s heritage. “We believe these extra attractions represent Oklahoma’s roots and where we all came from,” Stiles says. With our beautiful state in mind, this fair truly represents Oklahoma’s


charm.


Keeping it interesting This year’s Payne County Free Fair—a project a year in the making—isn’t the


only event keeping the expo center busy. The region’s first Pro-am archery tournament was held there this March. “We’re finding more and more ways to utilize our outdoor areas,” Oyster


says. The event made use of the expo center’s wooded grounds, an area typically


untouched. The expo center is also busy year-round with conferences, family reunions and wedding receptions. For the expo center, it’s about keeping customers interested. “We’re making changes that will allow us to have a fresh appearance and will benefit our clients,” Oyster says. As part of its five-year renovation plan, the Payne County Expo Center will update many of its buildings. This includes the McVey arena, one of the ex- po’s oldest buildings, which will soon be used for trade shows and meetings. Many of the dirt floor events will move from the McVey arena to the expo center’s new outdoor arena. The center is also excited to use its new portable stage for outdoor concerts and events. The Payne County Expo Center has been providing Payne County and its people with services, including the annual free fair, for 100 years, and it shows no signs of stopping. With delicious food, good music, interesting history and lively amusement, there’s something for everyone at the Payne County Expo Center’s 100th County Fair.
