Whether it be the amazing fair food, unique vendor shopping, Carnival Midway games and rides, quality entertainment or the more than livestock show competitors, the event has a draw for young and old. The small fair had all the qualities of a good, old-fashioned country fair and soon became an annual tradition. From its humble beginnings, the fair continued to grow and add new attractions. In its early years, the event moved locations between parks, schools and churches, and it soon became clear that these small venues lacked the necessary amenities and space to host what was becoming a large and popular fair. In the fair committee decided to pursue a more permanent location for the fair. This committee, under the direction of Grant M. Bowler, was able to obtain acres of ground in Logandale, Nevada, from the BLM, information from the fair history webpage said.
Bowler was one of the founders in of what was then called the Moapa Valley Fair. Her husband, Todd, is CEO of the fair and rodeo, which is a private company; his father also was a founder. He said then-county commissioner Bruce Woodbury suggested the county take possession of the land and the two entities developed a property relationship. Development funding came from grants from the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and the state, plus private funds and donated labor. In , the name was changed to Clark County Fair. It has a part-time staff of four and about volunteers. Denise Robison: It kind of brings you back to your roots, teaches you where things come from.

The Clark County Fair had its beginning back in 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. Throughout the seventies and early eighties, the fair took place at various locations in the community such as the local park, churches and schools. Each location lacked some key elements necessary to house the ever growing and popular fair.
