Tournament of the Inland Empire 2021 - August 7th & 8th


This summer plan on taking in the spirit of mid-evil times right at the Clayton Community fairgrounds. One of the most popular events held at the CCF is the Tournament of the Inland Empire, there will be jousting, archery and swordplay August 7th and 8th. Mark your calendars to take in all the excitement. Come support these local talented jousters, archers and broadswords. Events begin at 2 PM and end at 10 PM - tickets are available at the event for $10 - kids under 6 are free. Vendors will be onsite for dining needs.

Do you have a kid that needs community service hours for graduation? Is your group looking for a way to give back to the community?  We have some easy projects around the grounds to get ready for all of our events.  Some of the things we need help with include:

* Staining 3 sets of bleachers at the arena

* Weed pulling, tree trimming

If you have time and can help out please call 276-2444 for details.

Volunteers Needed

Everything that happens at the fairgrounds is done through the donation of time and sweat of volunteers. This year, we once again need to ask people to step up and help around the grounds and for the fair.  Here are some things we need help with:

* Watering Crew - There is a lot of grass out there - we need people to go to the grounds in the morning and turn on the water sprinklers - that's it just turn the water on.  We also need people to go out mid-day to turn off those sprinklers, move them to a different location and turn them on again.  We water the grounds in the heat daily, so we need some help to ensure the grounds look great for the fair, the rodeo and all the weddings that occur on our grounds.

* Mowing & Weed Eating - Grass and buildings means mowing and weed eating, we need people to help weed eat or pull weeds from the flower beds. You can come out in the morning or the evening for a couple of hours a day, a week or a month - we just need help with the upkeep.

* Green Barn Monitors - The Green Barn hosts our textiles, projects, displays, photography and cooking divisions.  There are a lot of hand made items in the barn that need someone to watch over them during the fair to ensure they don't get damaged or lost.  We need people to volunteer for a day or a few hours whatever works for your schedule August 27, 28 and 29th to just hang out in the green barn and watch over the exhibits - chairs are available. 

If you can help with the grounds work please contact Dwayne at 509.276.5136 and he will walk you through what needs to be done.  For Green Barn volunteers, please contact Meeghan Ware at 509.710.1601 and she can tell you all about this opportunity.

The next time you come to the grounds, check out our new ticket booth and entrance sign.  Our volunteers have been busy in the past year moving  and updating the entrance to the fairgrounds. We strive to keep our agricultural roots alive and well in the Clayton & Deer Park area.  If you would like to help us in that mission, we are always looking for volunteers.

Fair Meetings

Clayton Pro West Rodeo 


Thank you to everyone that came out for the rodeo, your gate fee helps fund the fair premiums paid to our exhibitors during the fair. A special thank you to the rodeo sponsors and of course the volunteers that do everything from collecting money, collecting trash, maintaining the beer garden, running and helping competitors and spectators with parking.  We could not hold the rodeo without these sponsors and volunteers, so once again - Thank you!!
