2023 WVAFF Hall of Fame

Krista Snodgrass, 2023 WVAFF Hall of Fame recipient

A big thanks goes to Krista Snodgrass, our 2023 Hall of Fame recipient, for not only serving the Association as Secretary from 2013 to 2023, but her many, many years of service to the Putnam County Fair, including most recently being voted as President of the Putnam County Fair. Without the hard-work, dedication, sacrifices, countless hours, and love of fairs and festivals of folks like Krista, events like hers and the many others around the state would not be possible.
