In conjunction with a multimillion-dollar renovation, the Placer County Fairgrounds will relaunch as @ The Grounds to better reflect the diverse types of events that are hosted at the site every year.
“Whether it be dog shows @ The Grounds, the Placer County Fair @ The Grounds or a host of other events @ The Grounds, we believe the name is an optimal fit for the modern facilities and events that will soon emerge here,” said Placer Valley Tourism and @ The Grounds CEO David Attaway.
Renovations began in mid-July to Jones and Johnson halls. New landscaping along Washington Boulevard, repaving of the main parking lot and another 21 repairs are also planned for the Roseville site. These changes, expected to be completed by end of the year, are to ensure the facilities are up-to-date, accessible to all and accommodating to more groups that wish to use the complex.
While upgrades are being made, staff is also seeking approval of a 5,000-person, 130,000-square-foot events center that would be built on a vacant parcel on the west end of the property.
