Essex Junction, Vt., (December 30, 2010) The December issue of the Champlain Business Journal features an article on the new Champlain Valley Exposition entryway. The full scope of the project was a joint initiative between CVE and the village of Essex Junction and included a ticket booth designed by Gardner Kilcoyne Architects, a widened promenade, signage, landscaping and lighting.
“Fairgoers this past summer entered the fairground’s walk-in entrance via a widened promenade that led to a newly constructed ticket booth. The ticket booth, now a focal point, was moved slightly west.”
The article notes that the improvements have been well received and the construction costs came in lower than expected. The fair’s opening this year began with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and dedication at the new ticket booth, led by Governor Jim Douglas.
