The Lake County Fairgrounds is operated by an agency of the State of California, the 49th District Agricultural Association.
The Lake County Fairgrounds is administered by the Chief Executive Officer, who reports to the 49th District Agricultural Association Board of Directors. Each member of the Board of Directors has been appointed by the Governor of California to a four year term. The Board President and Vice President are selected annually from within the Board membership.
Throughout the normal course of the year, the CEO and an account technician are assisted by several seasonal employees, and that work force expands to approximately 100 people during the week of the annual fair.
