Project description: Ozark Empire Fairgrounds Operations Manager Casey Owen said the new building will be used to house livestock during the fair. However, he said the facility will have portable stalls that can be removed to allow other events in the space.

This year’s Ozark Empire Fair is set to continue as planned July 30-Aug. 8, according to its website.
