March 2021 Update
As many Bay County Florida residents are aware FEMA still continues to occupy Fairground space to assist housing displaced Bay County residents. We will begin work on that area of the Fairground once it becomes available. Our goal is to provide periodic updates once a restoration project is complete. And, we will have more information on any public events via this website or our Facebook page. We encourage you to Like and Follow us on Facebook or via this website. If you have general questions please review our FAQ page or specific questions please reach out to us in email or call our Fair Manager.

In support of the William C. Cooper Sr., Legion Post 66 DAV 17 Membership Drive:
If anyone is interested in Joining the American Legion membership eligibility has changed. Please be advised that on July 30th the Legion Act was signed into law which extended the ongoing declared period of war back to December 7th 1941. The act paved the way to honor thousands of veterans who were killed or wounded on duty during periods not previously considered wartime. What this means is that any veteran with an honorable discharge who served since the Day Pearl Harbor was attacked is now eligible to join the American Legion. If you are interested in more information or to join Post 66 please be in touch with Mr. Jim Hixson at 850-399-0315 or Mr. Bob Johnson at 850-769-2645. Meetings are held monthly (second Thursday of each month) at the Fairgrounds located at 2230 East 15th Street Panama City Florida.
