Workers from Single Source Renewables, along with trainees in a Cochise College-SouthEastern Arizona Governments Organization training program, install 154 Jetion solar panels on the roof of the education and science building at the Cochise County Fairgrounds. The project is expected to save the fairgrounds 80 percent of its energy bill.

The Cochise County Fair Association formed in 1924 and commemorated its 87th fair in 2011. A privately-owned non-profit organization led by a volunteer board of directors, the fair is funded through the State of Arizona’s Livestock and Agricultural Promotion Fund and proceeds from events and facility rental.

The fair association hosts the annual county fair each fall at the Cochise County Fairgrounds on Leslie Canyon Road just north of Douglas, Ariz. The event draws thousands of visitors from across the county and northern Mexico and is an integral part of the region’s history and culture. The fair association is grateful that the Cochise County Board of Supervisors has co-hosted the fair in recent years.

The fairgrounds also serve as a venue for private gatherings and parties, community functions, training events, concerts and carnivals, and agricultural and equine events.
