So many times most of the citizens of Sedalia and the surrounding area don't think there's much going on around the area. Well, one location is seeing event after event...that's the Missouri State Fairgrounds.

If you go to the website mostatefairgrounds.com and click on the "Year Round Event Calendar", you can see what all is happening on the fairgrounds.
