Afton Fair Feedback Poll

In late 2013, The Afton Fairboard conducted a feedback poll. Over 170 people in the area, from a wide range of ages, responded to the poll. The most frequent feedback we received was that we needed to bring back a Midway to the fair, followed closely by exciting grandstand entertainment. As you can see, we have secured a midway, Gillette Shows, for the 125th Afton Fair, and we are working on a grandstand event that will meet those expectations. Another common theme in the feedback was affordability. We as a fairboard have alway strived to make the Afton Fair an affordable event and will continue to do so.

Again, thank you to everyone who completed the poll. We appreciate your input!
