The Eaton County Agricultural Society’s mission is to provide a safe and secure place for the youth of Eaton County to train and showcase their exhibits. Along with putting on the Eaton County Fair the Society also rents out its buildings and/or grounds for concerts, camping rallies, weddings and other non-fair events. The society has fifteen boards of directors that are voted in to place buy the members of the society, out of the fifteen board members five of them are executive officers, voted in place by its fifteen board members. The society meets on the third Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in Kardell Hall on the fair grounds. The meetings are open to the public and anyone that desires to become a member may do so by contacting a society member or call the fair office.
