The Northwest Washington Fair Foundation is pleased to announce the new Agricultural Education Center, housed in the Farm Pavilion at the Northwest Washington Fairgrounds & Event Center in Lynden.

The Farm Pavilion will be a two-level, approximately 26,000-square-foot building that replaces several of the older structures near the primary Front Street entrance to the fairgrounds.

The building will include space for the year-round display of the award-winning "Farming for Life Experience", according to Lynden berry grower Brad Rader, who is leading the fundraising effort.

"We need to highlight the importance of agriculture in our community year-round," Rader said.

Major pledges from local individuals and businesses already have raised much of the $5 million needed for the Agricultural Education Center, but $450,000 is still needed to complete the project. Also, the Northwest Washington Fair & Event Center will receive $1.8 million from the State of Washington.
