Missouri State Fair Announces Restoration Project

Missouri State Fair Director Mark Wolfe announced today that a restoration project on the Historic Main Gate of the State Fairgrounds in Sedalia is currently underway. The restoration of the gate, which was originally built in 1939, is being funded by the Missouri Bicentennial Commission.

The restoration project will include water blasting, priming and resurfacing to form previously defined contours. The upper steel structure and the three booths will be repainted. New vinyl signage will be added as well as new light fixtures on the existing light poles.

The restoration project is being completed by W & M Welding, Inc. of Sedalia, and is set with an early spring 2022 completion date, weather permitting. Those interested in the progress of the restoration can follow the Fair’s Facebook page for updates and photographs.

The 2022 Missouri State Fair will take place Aug. 11-21, in Sedalia.
