In 1975 new restrooms and shower facilities were added to the campgrounds and both the main fairgrounds and campgrounds were connected to the Gallipolis City Northwest Sewer Project. Through twenty-five years the fair has grown and expanded to become officially recognized as the largest exclusive junior fair in the state of Ohio. The need for more land became a necessity, therefore in 1975, the board made a momentous decision and purchased an additional fifty-four acres adjacent to the present fairgrounds. This brought the total acres now owned by the fair board to ninety-five acres.
