STATEHOUSE (Oct. 11, 2022) — The Indiana Department of Agriculture will virtually stream the upcoming State Fair Advisory Committee meeting, said State Sen. Jean Leising (R-Oldenburg), chair of the committee.
The advisory committee will meet at the Indiana Statehouse in room 233 on Thursday, Oct. 13, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be a period for public comment following presentations.
"The Indiana State Fairgrounds is a well-loved hub for Indiana residents to gather and celebrate the Spirit of Indiana," Leising said. "Having the meeting streamed online and open for public comment will provide better insight for local and state leaders on concerns regarding visitor experience and 4-H participation at the fairgrounds."
The advisory committee serves as a group of non-voting members of the Indiana State Fair Commission to provide legislative insight in ensuring successful representation of the state and partnership with the agriculture 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.
