Lake County website makes it easier to book events

Booking a festival, party, convention, or showcase at the Lake County Fairgrounds & Events Center is now easier than ever.

The Lake County Office of Communications, along with the Information Technology Department, has revamped the county’s website. The new site integrates a reservation application with a point-of-sale system that simplifies everything.

Now, you can click on an interactive map, choose the space you want to rent, pay quickly and securely online via credit card, and you’re done.

“We had previously been using hand-written receipts with carbon copies, manually totaling reports and using boards to mark reserved spaces,” says Fairgrounds and Event Center Manager Cole Scharlau.

“The website has streamlined everything and given us a great place to send prospective market vendors and event customers. This site is a huge step up for the fairgrounds, both for staff and customers. Integrating it into our operation has been a smooth transition.”

Home of the annual Lake County Fair and weekly Farmers’ & Flea Market, the Fairgrounds & Event Center hosts private and public events of all sizes, including everything from private weddings to agility dog shows.

The Center offers 30 acres available for public events and is located at 2101 N. County Road 452, Eustis. For more information visit
