The new $46 million events and conference center currently under construction is the centerpiece of a plan to revitalize the Washington County Fair Complex in Hillsboro. When completed in mid-2020, the 89,000-square-foot building will contain 40,000 square feet of exposition space and a 10,600-square-foot conference center with a commercial kitchen, three meeting rooms, concessions and offices. The project also includes a large entry plaza near the main lobby. An outdoor exhibition area on the west side of the building will open into the interior of the fairgrounds.
