It is almost State Fair Time! The Kentucky State Fair will take place in Louisville, KY Aug. 20-30. The Edmonson County Tourism Commission once again will have a booth for Edmonson County in the Pride In The Counties area but volunteers are needed to assist with the booth.
To achieve this goal, the Tourism Commission is starting a program for businesses and organizations to “Adopt a Day At The State Fair.”
In return for your staff manning a booth for the day, the business or organization will receive free fair tickets & free parking for volunteers, and the business or organization will receive advertising presence in the booth for the day, and special recognition plaque presented at the Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner in the Fall. The Tourism Commission is asking for the sponsor to send at least 2 employees to sit in the Edmonson County booth, inside the South Wing exhibition area (air conditioned) for the day to greet people.
“We feel the booth at the state fair is an important marketing tool. Many Nolin Lake land owners and visitors are from Louisville area and interject money in our community," said Tourism Director Rhonda Clemmons. "We also feel the booth projects a positive image about Edmonson County to the entire state. Only with the help of our community, can we successfully achieve this project.”
Those wishing to volunteer and sponsor a day are asked to do so by. Aug. 5th. Please “Adopt a Day At The State Fair” by calling 270-597-2222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
