Matt HallMatt HallFair Board Member

Matt Hall has been volunteering at the Teton County Fair for the last three decades. He does everything from assist the Lion’s Club in the Big Top Tent to helping prepare and serve breakfast. He enjoys seeing the community gather together to have a good time. Matt also has been a big part of the Exhibit Hall, accepting open class entries and setting them up for display. It wouldn’t be a county fair without the friendly contest between crafts, preserves, and gardeners.  Matt is happy to serve on the volunteer Fair Board and he hopes everyone enjoys our County Fair.
