Lexington Fall Fest Extravaganza Under New Leadership in 2017
The Lexington Area Chamber of Commerce has announced that following the 2016 Lexington Fall Fest Extravaganza they will no longer be the host for this event.
“Through the strategic planning process the Lexington Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and staff went through, we are focused on working toward events and activities that either benefit a large number of our chamber members or bring our community together to celebrate Lexington. The Lexington Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors felt that it was time to move in a different direction from hosting the Extravaganza” stated Barry McFarland, President of the Lexington Area Chamber of Commerce.
The Lexington Antique Extravaganza will be under new leadership with the Dawson County Fair Board starting in 2017. The Dawson County Fair Board met and determined that they wanted to continue this event. “We are so thrilled that the Dawson County Fair Board will be leading this event and injecting new ideas into the Extravaganza,” said Ann Johnson, Fair Manager.
The Lexington Area Chamber of Commerce will be launching a new community celebration to be held the third weekend in June 2017.
The event is yet to be named, but will include a parade, activities and carnival in the park, concerts, and a movie in the park as well.
“We hope to make this an annual event so community can come together to celebrate the great history and diversity in Lexington,” stated Christy Werger, Executive Director of the Lexington Area Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber will be working with civic clubs, youth organizations and churches to recruit participation in this community event.
