The ceremony will be held on the northwest lawn, near the First Interstate Arena.

According to MetraPark, this event is a special tribute to reflect on the enduring legacy of William (Bill) Dutcher, whose leadership, service, and caring nature have made a significant impact in our community.

Bill worked at MetraPark for 40 years and served as General Manager for 15 years.

If you've been to MontanaFair or MetraPark events, Bill Dutcher was a name you got to know. Over his many dedicated years to MetraPark and MontanaFair, he worked tirelessly to create the thing we know and love today.

Where Is Bill Dutcher Way?

MetraPark says Bill Dutcher Way will be located in "the heart of the fairgrounds", and will serve as a daily reminder of Bill's unwavering commitment to our community, and Montana's Event Center.

With this token of appreciation, his legacy of leadership at MontanaFair and MetraPark will live on for generations to come.

The Final Day of the 2022 MontanaFair

After hours of fun and entertainment at the 2022 MontanaFair, I had to call it a day. At least, with the uncertain future for MetraPark ahead, I was able to enjoy this day with my friends who make the fair possible each and every year!
