The Blue Ribbon Foundation - Western Fairs Association's charitable arm - produces an annual All Access report within the Summer Edition of the Fair Dealer Magazine, highlighting activities occurring at fairgrounds that bring their communities together in inspiring ways. Past reports have included the veterans projects, fairgrounds serving in response to natural disasters, and unique fundraisers.

What inspiring things have you done for your community? We want to hear from you! Let's share all of the 'toot-your-own-horn' worthy stories with the industry! Email HeatherB@fairsnet.org with a one-paragraph description of your submission. If selected, you will be asked to provide high-resolution photographs to be included in the magazine.
