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.
