$10.00 A RUNNING FOOT
Cost is $10.00 a running foot for the whole season.
If you have a boat/pontoon, the length is measured from the front of the hitch to the end of the motor. New storage units will be measured by our staff.
MONDAY, APRIL 6 – SATURDAY, APRIL 11, 2020
Winter Storage will be released Monday, April 6, 2020 through Saturday, April 11, 2019 (weather permitting).
Release of items will begin by building. Please watch for an email or letter with your specific release date.
TYPES OF ITEMS:
We accept all forms of motor vehicles including cars, motor-homes, jet skis (on trailers), motorcycles, boats, pontoons, etc.
All vehicles must be in running order. Vehicles needing additional assistance and/or attention will be charged accordingly.
Once the unit has been stored, there is NO ACCESS to the unit. A $50/hour fee (minimum of $50) will apply if a unit must be removed prior to its scheduled release date. There are some circumstances where units will not be able to be released early.
The Red River Valley Fair Association DOES NOT have property damage insurance covering the stored unit. It is the responsibility of the owner to protect his property with sufficient property damage insurance to cover any loss for any reason while the stored unit is on the Red River Valley Fairgrounds.
Please go to the Schollander Pavilion to check-in for winter storage.
Any vehicle taken off Fairgrounds property without being checked out will waive all rights to damages! Please go to the Schollander Pavilion to sign-out your stored unit.

You must have your stored unit here, in order to complete paperwork
If you have a new unit, it will need to be measured before completing paperwork. We will have people on grounds who will measure it, this must be done by our employees.
Dryer Sheets – although we do not have a rodent problem, it has been found that if you add dryer sheets to your stored unit, rodents and insects are limited
Covers – if you have a cover for your car, please leave it on the passenger seat and we will cover it once it is parked
If there are special instructions for operating your car, please write them down and leave on the passenger seat (i.e. door latch issues, ignition tricks, no brakes, etc.)
Keys to cars must be left at the Fair Office – Batteries for vehicles (cars, trucks, vans, etc.) must be left in the vehicle – you can request for the battery to be disconnected
