Merchants Association of Columbia County
As a non-profit organization we look at our organization as a community resource, with one of our functions being to provide a quality County Fair for our guests and to enhance educational opportunities available at the fairgrounds with emphasis on youth and agriculture, while uniting urban and rural communities in celebration. We strive to entertain and promote our communities' traditions, talents, diversity, vision and agricultural heritage, in a secure and fiscally responsible way and to promote education for the youth of our area through exhibits, tours and the funding of scholarships. We highly encourage the participation of youth in these endeavors.
