To celebrate its 100th anniversary, MontanaFair has gotten a significant facelifit that expands from the Agriculture Bar to the Exchange Club Patio in the Grandstands area.

The myriad upgrades are designed to attract -- and please -- one of the biggest crowds ever to celebrate the century mark.

For year, Exchange Club Patio in the Grandstands area at MontanaFair has been a popular place to grab a beverage, relax, and listen to entertainment. Performers like the Dueling Pianos and last years' Divas Through the Decades have entertained as people travel up and down the food court on their way to rodeos, Supercross, or the midway.

That all changes for the 2015 MontanaFair.

"One of several improvements on the grounds this year is the Exchange Club Patio in the Grandstands,' said MontanaFair General Manager Bill Dutcher. "We've evolved the space to get a better area for the performers to do their shows and make it a lot more inviting."

The new patio area has nearly doubled in size to allow more tables and more access for people to enjoy the Bad Larrys performance at this years fair.

The new space was built by removing satellite dishes left over from previous events on the grounds, according to a news release. The stage area has been moved toward the back of the patio to encourage people to come into the space and stay for the fun.
