The Sussex County Farm & Horse Show Association, a non-profit organization, has been overseeing the Fairgrounds Complex by hosting a wide variety of events for over 40 years. These cultural, agricultural, athletic and entertainment events - many of which involve non-profit organizations - provide fun, wholesome entertainment to local residents and attract an increasing number of visitors to Sussex County throughout the year.
The mission statement governing the Fairgrounds is:
- Showcase New Jersey agriculture
- Provide safe, family-friendly entertainment & educational activities
- Promote youth development
- Give financial support to charitable, non-profit agencies.
The Fairgrounds receives no monetary support from government sources.

A new 2,000 sq. ft. addition has just been finished to the Richards Building and the new RED siding indicates big changes to come. Display items formerly stored inside will now be placed there after the fair is over, leaving more floor space in the main building. Phase 2 of the building renovation is now complete.
