The Association shall hold and promote a county fair each year to serve as its primary medium to achieve its mission. The primary focus of the county fair is to serve as a showcase of the talents of the youth of the community by providing a means of education, exhibit and competition of the various livestock and non-livestock projects in which the youth are involved. The Association will also use the county fair to highlight the heritage of the community, its ties to agriculture, industry, and businesses that are the backbone of the community.

The Association shall also promote non-fair events that will aid in sustaining the fairgrounds, while keeping in focus the overall mission of the Association. It will use its own Board members, as well as volunteers from the community organizations, civic clubs and individuals to make up the necessary manpower and expertise that is needed to insure the Association fulfills its mission. The Association will not be considered the authority of any event, other than the county fair and any event managed and produced by the Cherokee County Fair Association.
