Clay County Fair Honored

December 19, 2015

The Clay County Fair is getting some more special recognition.
The fair is the 2015 recipient of the “Blue Ribbon Fair” Award by the Board of Directors of the Association of Iowa Fairs. The award was presented at the organization’s annual meeting recently held in Des Moines.
   
The Clay County Fair was chosen to receive the award from all the fairs in the Association’s Northwest District. The award is based on progress in providing service to youth programs in the community, along with distinguished service to the community in both fair and non-fair areas.  
  
The Association of Iowa Fairs is the organizational body of the fair industry in Iowa. Its members represent 105 county fairs in Iowa and the Iowa State Fair, along with carnivals, entertainment agencies, festivals, concessionaires, special attractions and suppliers to the industry.
