The Faribault County Fair Board of Directors held an emergency meeting on March 31, 2017, to discuss the coming summer months and the 2017 fair after seeing the Farmer's Almanac calling for another hot summer like that of the 2016 county fair. To avoid the terribly hot tempuratures, Zach Rinehart moved to change the dates of the fair to December 12-16 for a five day fair. President Sara Gack implimented board member Zach Rinehart's motion via executive order and deemed the 2017 Faribault County Fair as the, "GIANT Gathering under the Snow."
New games and activities will be added to the grounds, including a fairgrounds wide snowball fight similar to dodgeball with the last man standing being the winner of the grand prize of Glove Warmers, A Year Supply of Hot Chocolate, and Cold Hard Cash!
