Who We Are
The Ozark Empire Fair Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was formed in 2003. The Foundation is dedicated to preserving and cultivating Southwest Missouri's rich agricultural heritage by supporting youth in agriculture and improving the facility of the Ozark Empire Fair.
The Impact...One Million Dollars
Since 2004, the OEF Foundation has been fortunate to award over $1,247,270 in additional premiums, scholarships and grants to Southwest Missouri's youth in agriculture. Additionally, the Foundation has provided financial assistance totaling more than $1.7 million to the fairgrounds for improvements to ensure that future generations have a functional facility in which to exhibit their livestock projects.
