The Park County Events Department provides county properties as venues for community events, fundraisers, benefits, company parties, weddings, family celebrations, and private gatherings. The department works and coordinates with various individuals and groups on their respective events. In addition, the Events Department works in conjunction with the Park County Fair Advisory Board to plan and produce the Park County Fair held every year the last full week in July.
The Events Department offices are housed at the Park County Fairgrounds located in Powell which is in the Northwest corner of Wyoming. Powell is 75 miles east of Yellowstone National Park and 98 miles south of Billings, Montana. Lying between the Big Horn Mountains on the east and the Absaroka Range on the west, clear blue skies, clean air, a pleasant temperate climate, and loads of sunshine make the Powell Valley a great place to live and visit. The Park County Fairgrounds are centrally located in Powell and make a perfect spot to host any sized event or gathering. The 20 acre, 9-building fairgrounds feature paved and lighted parking as well as large open grassy spaces.
We have several different areas and buildings for rent. If you have an event to put on, we have what you need to make it a success. Big or small, indoors or outside, we have the space to fit your needs and can accommodate events of every size. Year-round camping (electric only camping in off season) is also available at the fairgrounds.
