2010 Was Tough Year For Champlain Valley Expo

Print More

Officials at Vermont’s Champlain Valley Exposition say poor weather, low attendance and a battered economy are to blame for a half-million dollar drop in annual revenues last year.

The Essex fairground’s annual financial report, obtained by the Burlington Free Press, shows it generated about $4.9 million for all of its events last year, down from $5.4 million in 2009.

The exposition plays host to the Champlain Valley Fair, a 10-day summer fair that drew 262,720 people last year, down from about 288,000 the year before.
