The Fairgrounds Core Values

We believe in:
• Operating in a safe and environmentally conscious manner
• Agriculture and food as our foundation
• Investing in and nurturing our customers, our personnel and our facilities
• Fiscal responsibility
• Building family memories and traditions for future generations
• Responsible stewardship of this historic and treasured state institution
• Constant innovation and dynamic, relevant presentations

The Fairgrounds Culture

The Indiana State Fair Commission has a culture unlike that of many private businesses as well as other State government agencies. While operating as a business with a focus on revenue, we are a community partner that operates with integrity and a sense of caring for others – even when no one is looking. Agriculture is the foundation of this cherished century-and-a-half old institution which we take pride in preserving and enhancing. We are ethical, courteous and considerate in our business decisions. We take a ‘can-do’ approach to customer service as we create family memories for the citizens of Indiana.
