Annual Convention for
Oregon State Fairs Association
4H and FFA.
Pigs and cows.
Corn dogs and cotton candy.
Pro rodeo and the demo derby.
Whatever you think of when you hear the words, “county fair”, you’re right! And each year the Oregon Fairs Association holds their annual convention where fair managers, fair boards, and the folks who provide services to fairs get together to talk shop, trade ideas, and get inspired for the upcoming year.
For performers like me, it’s not only a chance to drum up business, but also a great time hanging out with others in the entertainment biz to catch up and chat. This year there were a lot of magicians, and it was a treat spending some time with Jeff Martin, Godfrey the Magician, Hart Keene, and Louie Foxx. And, the fairs are full of really great people -many volunteers – who make county fairs possible. Here are a few photos from this year’s Oregon Fairs Association convention held at the Salem Conference Center.
