After 70 Years Fairgrounds Gets A New Name


It will still be home to the Ozark Empire Fair, but it's not the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds anymore. Mike Smith files this report:

From The Associated Press April 26...

The 70-year-old venue just off Interstate I-44 in Springfield is now the Missouri Entertainment and Event Center.

General Manager Pat Lloyd says the new name reflects the nearly 100 annual events the facility hosts now, and more they hope to host in the future.

The Missouri Entertainment and Event Center features as 80-thousand square-foot exhibition hall, and 85-hundred-seat outdoor arena, and several livestock exhibition halls.
