WEST PALM BEACH, FL – Fresh off a spectacular 100th birthday celebration, the South Florida Fair Board is under new leadership. A new slate of officers was elected during the Board’s annual reorganization to lead the charge into the group’s start of its second century.
Craig K. Elmore was elevated to Chair succeeding Robert Broadway. Jonathan “Jack” Frost becomes Vice Chair. Michael W. Bubis was elected Treasurer while William E. Pruitt ascends to Secretary. Fair President and Chief Executive Officer Richard J. Vymlatil and General Counsel/Assistant Secretary John Fenn Foster continue in their roles for the Fair. A diverse and large group of local citizens, totaling over 100, were also elected to the Fair Board in various capacities ranging from Trustees, Distinguished and Life Trustees to Directors and Life and Honorary Directors.
The South Florida Fair, a private 501 c3 corporation, is Palm Beach County’s oldest and largest outdoor event dating back to 1912. This past January, the Fair celebrated an amazing Centennial with a special array of events, shows and musical concerts. The Fair is annually produced on the South Florida Fairgrounds, a 136 acre campus which serves as the center piece of family entertainment in the community. Over 100 shows or events are staged annually. In addition to the annual South Florida Fair in January, the Fairgrounds, centrally located on Southern Boulevard one mile west of the Florida Turnpike, is home to a vibrant Expo Center, a sprawling Agriplex, historic Yesteryear Village and the Cruzan Amphitheatre.
