The Del Norte County Fairgrounds Recreation and Park District (“District”) is a county-wide, independent special district. The District is governed by a five-member Board of Directors who are elected to serve four year terms. Pursuant to the Public Resources Code, recreation and park districts are authorized to: (a) organize, promote, conduct, and advertise programs of community recreation, including, but not limited to, parks and open space, parking, transportation, and other related services that improve the community’s quality of life; (b) establish systems of recreation and recreation facilities, including, but not limited to, parks and open space; and (c) acquire, construct, improve, maintain, and operate recreation facilities, including, but not limited to, parks and open space, both inside and beyond the district’s boundaries. The District accomplishes these purposes by contracting with the 41st District Agricultural Association to provide and maintain facilities and programs at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds.
The Del Norte County Fairgrounds are located at 421 Highway 101 in Crescent City, CA and are owned by the State of California, and governed by a separate local Board, the 41st District Agricultural Association Board of Directors, who are appointees of the Governor of the State of California. The Fairgrounds site includes numerous structures, a large parking lot, rodeo arena, horse barns/arena, open space areas, and natural resource areas. In addition to the annual fair, the site facilities are used year-round by various organizations for recreational and community events.
