New Mexico State Fair Records Decrease in Revenue

Jan 7, 2014

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Attendance at the New Mexico State Fair was down and so was revenue.

Unaudited figures provided by Expo New Mexico's chief financial officer indicate that revenues totaled $4.7 million during the Sept. 1-22 fair.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, that compares with $5.2 million during the 2012 fair.

Year-to-year attendance dropped 4 percent.

Fair manager Dan Mourning says the 2013 fair was hampered by record rainfall during the beginning of the 12-day run.
