Josh Padron

Hello to all my dear family and friends! My name is Josh Padron, aka “BJ”. I joined the Fair family as a working S.O. in 2001, started volunteering for Site Crew in 2006 where I currently act as co-coordinator, and have been a member of Fair Central during Fair since 2015. My year-round participation in projects that encompass the entire site as well as my event operational perspective with Fair Central gives me the ability to offer broad insights as a member of our Board of Directors.

I am dedicated to our event, community, and organization, as well as to all of the amazing people that make the Fair possible. If elected I would strive to listen to all of the concerns of our diverse membership and work towards solutions that honor and include as many voices as possible. As a father of two graduating teen-crew members, I am sensitive to the challenges of growth and the need to include and empower the next generation in conversations around visions for our future while leveraging the knowledge and experience of our longest-term Fair Family.

I will also work to strengthen the relationship between the board, management, volunteers, entertainers, and vendors. A united fair is a sustainable fair. As we approach our 50th anniversary, sustainability means much more than just environmental or financial health, but also the long-term endurance of our community as a united voice with the wisdom of all generations involved in creating and recreating our organization.

I look forward to making the Fair the best Fair it can be as a volunteer, and hopefully as a Board member with all of your support.
