It has been the combined work and efforts of many volunteers that have developed and managed the Fair and successfully produced an old-fashioned, family-oriented fair for so many people to enjoy. With a part-time staff of four, and over 500 volunteers working together, we pledge to continue to bring this flavor and fun to each and every Fair!
The Clark County Fair had its beginning back in 1965. Known as the Moapa Valley Fair, it was held at the Overton Community Center. Compared to the present day fair, this first fair was small in size. Nevertheless, it had all the flavor and elements of a good old county fair. From this simple beginning, the Moapa Valley Fair became an annual event. Each year new attractions were added, such as a carnival midway, junior livestock show, and a rodeo.
