Park Stage Annex

The Elkhart County 4-H Fair’s Heritage Park has become a well-maintained green space and a refreshing focal point for fair-goers and event participants throughout the outdoor season. Heritage Park has benefitted by many improvements and enhancements over the years, including expanded seating areas for eating and connecting with others, a beautiful park stage for entertainment and events, and upgrades in sidewalks and landscaping. The Clock Tower with its many monument plaques is perhaps the most recognizable landmark of the Fair.

In our continuing efforts to maintain the beauty and functionality of Heritage Park, we plan to add a small annex to the back of the stage. Previously, we have used an RV as a dressing room during the Fair. However, the RV is aging and in disrepair. The Annex will replace the RV and provide three rooms that can be utilized as dressing rooms during the Fair and host small meetings and groups throughout the year, such as 4-H clubs, rallies, the Mennonite Relief Sale, and many others.

Estimated Cost

The estimated cost of this project is $60,000. We are applying for a matching grant from the Community Foundation of Elkhart County to help us reach our goal. We are grateful for the members of our board who have generously offered their services and expertise to oversee and construct the annex. We hope to break ground in the next 30-60 days and complete the structure before the 2022 Fair.

Our Goal

Our goal is to raise $30,000 in 30 days! This would allow us to share with the Community Foundation Board our part and responsibility in the project.

How We Plan to Reach Our Goal

We plan to reach our goal through the following methods:
1) Donations
  • Donations may be tax-deductible as the Elkhart County 4-H Fair is a 501-C-3 organization. We are grateful to the many individuals and businesses who have helped make our Fairgrounds an attractive location for our Fair as well as many rallies and events.
2) Engraved Stone Plaques
  • These stone plaques will be located around the perimeter of the annex walls.
  • $500 - engraved with name(s)
  • $1000 - engraved with logo/image and name(s).
