While the two organizations have worked together in the past, last year they entered into a new three year agreement providing the expo with $80,000 per year.
As part of the new partnership, the Compton Arena changed it’s name to the Seven Feathers Event Center.
“We feel that as our neighbors, as our community, that it’s very rewarding to see the success of the Expo,” Michael Rondeau said, the CEO of the Cow Creek Umpqua Tribe.
A spokesperson for the Expo says some of the funding is going toward two summer concerts at this year’s Jackson County Fair.
