The event will begin at 6:00 p.m. with an Open House and Guided Tours of the Fair followed by local artists performances and twenty years of events and people remembered at 7:00 p.m.  Hors d'oeuvres will be served afterwards and we encourage the public to join us for the celebration.

The Fair Theater was rehabilitated to its current condition and reopened in October 1999. Led by David Wilder and the Fair Theater Renovation Board of Directors, the rehabilitation required a community effort including craftsmanship from local prisoners, donations from the community and support from the City.

Since its Re-Opening twenty years ago, various acts including a Plainview rendition of Hee Haw, the Musical Texas band performance, Marty Haggard and other productions have made their way across the stage. Of course, the facility is also available to the public and various children and adults have graced the stage for play productions, concerts, movie parties, birthday parties, weddings, business meetings and more.

“The Fair is a ‘gem of downtown’ and a great asset for the community,” says Melinda Brown, Fair Theater Manager. “There was much blood, sweat, tears and money that went into the rehabilitation to make the building what it is today and we are excited to honor their work.”

This event is the first of a year-long celebration commemorating the renovation. Fair staff will presenting more entertainment options to the Fair throughout the year as well as telling the Fair renovation and history to the public through local media and social media.
