Washington County Event Center
The new Event Center at the Washington County Fair Complex includes approximately 40,000 square feet of exposition space and a 14,000 sf, state-of-the-art, conference center, complete with commercial kitchen, concessions and offices. The spacious interior will be complemented by a large entry plaza adjacent to the lobby, and an outdoor exhibit area on the west, opening to the interior grounds of the Fair Complex. The new venue will offer various room configurations sized to accommodate consumer shows, conferences and trade shows, corporate meetings and seminars, banquets and receptions, fundraisers, festivals, spectator events and a variety of community uses. During the annual county fair the Event Center will provide ample indoor exhibit space, restrooms and concessions. Spearheaded by Washington County, the facility is a cooperative effort with the City of Hillsboro and the Washington County Visitor’s Association. LRS is working with design consultant BSP on this project.
