The Lynn Dunn Memorial Building was constructed in honor of a man whose passion was the Linn County Fair. Lynn served as a Linn County Fair board member and held multiple leadership positions within the Fair Association until his passing in March 2008. He also served as director of the Association of Iowa Fairs Northeast District.
Lynn’s dream was to take the Linn County Fair to the next level. He helped bring this dream to life by bringing the carnival back and adding concerts and more grandstand events to the fair. He also dreamed about having a building on the Linn County Fairgrounds that was an “all year” building. It would include meeting rooms, a kitchen, and exhibition hall.
It is with great pride that the Linn County Fair Association made his dream of a year round facility come true via the Lynn Dunn Memorial Project. Funds were raised, the building was designed and constructed, and it officially opened for use in 2014.
The Lynn Dunn Memorial Building features:
- Exhibition hall with a 500 person capacity
- Full catering kitchen
- Large conference room
- Small conference room
- Large restrooms
- And more!
