Warren County Fairgrounds Event Center

Warren County Board of Commissioners

Design Challenge: The departure of horse racing and demolition of an aging grandstand facility gave Warren County the opportunity to consider alternative options for a replacement venue on the Warren County Fairgrounds. To fulfill the needs of the annual Warren County Fair and also address a growing demand for upscale, year round events including meetings, trade shows, conferences, weddings and banquets, the Warren County Fairgrounds Event Center was proposed.

Design Solution: Collaborating with the Warren County Board of Commissioners, Warren County Agricultural Society, and Conger Construction, MSP designed the Warren County Event Center (WCEC) as a multi-functional facility with operable partitions and additional break out spaces to accommodate simultaneous events for small or large groups.

Design Outcome: The completed WCEC is booking a variety of year-round events that would not have been possible with the previous grandstand structure. The traditional exterior design fits with the character of the existing campus buildings while the modern interior creates a welcoming environment for all visitors.
