Clay County Fair Museum

To showcase the bounty of the Clay County farmers, the Spencer CommercialClub established the Clay County Fair Association in 1917. Their inaugural fiar was help in September of 1918. It is now known as the "World's Greatest County Fair."

The Clay County Fair Association and Clay County Heritage work together to provide a glimpse into Clay County Fairs of the past. As of 2018, the Fair Museum moved to a permanent location on the southwest side of the Events Center. This location includes memorabilia and photos from past fairs that are available year round in the Events Center plus added artifacts during fair time. Fairgoers are encouraged to visit yearly as the exhibits vary.
