*NEW* Jones County Equestrian Center

Here at the Great Jones County Fair we're ALWAYS looking for the next thing we can build and improve upon at our fair and this year we're proud to unveil the brand new JONES COUNTY EQUESTRIAN CENTER! Through an incredible amount of support from local Jones County individuals and businesses we have been able to build an amazing new equestrian center. A fully covered, full-size arena will serve our area and help to grow horsemanship in Jones County for many many years to come.

Thank you to everyone who made this possible!

More information will be coming, but for now, enjoy the contruction timelapse video below and learn more about the events being hosted in the new arena at the 2017 Great Jones County Fair.
