Board of Directors

The State of California is divided into 54 District Agricultural Associations. The Yolo County Fairgrounds, established in 1935, are operated by the 40th District on behalf of the State under the Department of Food and Agriculture (Fairs & Expositions unit).

The Fairgrounds are made self-supporting through year around facility rentals and contributions from the Horse Racing Industry. We do not receive state general funds.

The 40th DAA is governed by a nine-member board. Each member is appointed by the Governor and serves a two-year term. The members do not received a stipend.

The Board appoints a CEO/Secretary who is charged with the day-to-day operations of the facilities. The Board meets on the third, Thursday of every month unless otherwise noted.
