WALLA WALLA—On January 4, 2021, Walla Walla County announced Gregory (Greg) S. Lybeck, CFE (Certified Fair Executive), has been selected for the Fairgrounds Manager position. Lybeck will start his new role with the County on January 19, 2021.

“I am very excited about this opportunity to get back into the fair industry and be part of the oldest fair in Washington state that has such rich tradition and community support. Walla Walla is a place my wife and I have enjoyed visiting. We look forward to being a part of your great community,” Lybeck said.

Lybeck had more than 27 years of experience in the Fair and Events industry before taking a year-long break from fair administration. The sector encompasses rodeo, public events, fair and facilities management, sporting events, and concerts. Lybeck most recently served as the Assistant Fair Manager/General Manager of the Central Washington State Fair and managed the Yakima SunDome. “We are pleased to have such a highly regarded and qualified candidate in Greg Lybeck.

Greg’s vast experience in the Fair industry, coupled with his expertise in operating a facility as the SunDome, will allow for review and growth of an already successful Walla Walla Fair and Frontiers days and the day-to-day operation of the County’s event center. We welcome Greg and his wife Dana to our community,” said Walla Walla County Commissioner Greg Tompkins, who took the lead for filling the manager vacancy, on behalf of the County Commissioners.
