Clay County Fairgrounds Off Limits Next Week for Convention

July 14, 2021 10:26am

The Clay County Fairgrounds will be off limits to the general public beginning at noon next Monday, July 19th through Sunday, July 25th.

Fair General Manager Jeremy Parsons says the National Trappers Convention will be going on, and that the organization will be using the entire fairgrounds, including the north parking lot and north campgrounds.

As a result, Parsons says fair commercial exhibitors and non-profit organizations will not have access to their privately owned structures during that time; and no 4-H practices will be held on the grounds. Members of the public also won't be allowed to walk their dogs, ride bikes or enter the grounds during that time, and there will be no access to the Fair Administrative Offices.

The National Trappers Convention is expected to bring ten-thousand visitors to Spencer.
