Winter Storage


Winter storage begins Monday, October 9

Winter storage items are accepted Tuesdays - Fridays 8:30 AM - 3:00 PM (until full)

2023 Storage Update: Very limited indoor storage available. No longer accepting 5th wheels for indoor storage.

Outdoor storage is still available for all items.

First come, first served. Space is limited!

Items will only be accepted during these hours.




If you have a boat/pontoon, the length is measured from the front of the hitch to the end of the motor. New storage items will be measured by the Red River Valley Fair staff.


Winter storage release will begin April 2024. 5th Wheels must be removed by TBD.

Every item must be checked out in Butler Arena before removing it from the Fairgrounds.

Release of items will begin by building. Please check your email or watch for a letter with your specific release date. Emails will be sent out in March 2024.



We accept all forms of 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.

All vehicles will be driven in and parked in storage building by owner. Owner is responsible for disconnecting the battery, putting on a car cover, or any other special instructions. RRVF staff will NOT be parking or doing special instructions for vehicles.

5th wheels will be driven into storage building by owner.

Boats, pontoons, campers will be brought into storage by RRVF staff.


Once the item has been stored, there is NO ACCESS to the unit. A $50/hour fee (minimum of $50) will apply if a item must be removed prior to its scheduled release date. There are some circumstances where items 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.
