All Members of our Executive Board and General Board Directors/Members are volunteers who provide countless hours of volunteerism and knowledge to our fairgrounds success. Without these efforts and those of over 1,300 volunteers - The Sussex County Fairgrounds would not be the positive influence within the community as it has been for over 75 years.
