Clayton Rodeo Entries Now Open

Can you believe that it is time for our rodeo competitors to register to ride?  It is!  We have sponsors coming in, purses lined up, t-shirts for sale, awesome buckles and are preparing for another fun event on July 21st and 22nd. 


For competitors, we have a new program so please have patience any questions please call 509 276 2444.  You can go here to register and rough stock can enter twice. Team ropers will need to call 509-276-2444 to enter.  You have to register to ride before July 14th so we have time to get our line up prepared. 

If you would like to be a vendor during the rodeo, we have room especially for more food vendors.  You can download the vendors form and return it to

If you love a good family time or are familiar with rodeos, please save the dates of July 21st and 22nd.  Gates will open at 5 PM and the rodeo starts at 7:30 PM, seats are first come, first serve basis but you can grab dinner from one of our vendors and enjoy the summer evening in the great outdoors.  Slack will occur following the Friday night performance which is also our Tough Enough to Wear Pink night (wear your favorite pink shirt to support breast cancer awareness - if your tough enough that is).  The beer garden was expanded last year and has become a popular spot for our spectators, please designate a driver and remember that only those over 21 are allowed in the beer garden. 

We can't wait to see everyone for some broncs, bulls, barrels and fun! Stay tuned for more fun and announcements as we get closer to rodeo time.

Fair Meetings
If you would like to learn more about the fair or volunteer, the monthly meetings are back! Come out the 4th Tuesday of the month starting at 7 pm at the Fairgrounds. 

Did you know that our board and everyone that helps with the fair in any capacity are all volunteers?  We meet monthly to dream up the best fair we can make possible for our community, but we need help!  We get it, not everyone wants to come to a bunch of meetings; but we need some general helpers just during the fair as well.  We need volunteers to help watch over the still life entries in the Green Barn to give our superintendents a chance to grab a meal or take a break. 

Come see us at the Fairgrounds, email us or call us to let us know what you can help with. 
Stars, Stripes and Summer Nights
August 25, 26 and 27th, 2023
Planning has begun already for our 2023 fair themed Stars, Stripes and Summer Nights.  Our superintendents are still working on details (the fair is months away!), but if you are plotting out your floral entry or planning out your livestock decorations - now you have the theme.
There are a few changes coming in 2023, we will be moving the Livestock Sale on Saturday to 3:30 PM to give our commercial buyers more time to get to the sale. 

We encourage people to start thinking about what you can sew, bake or can to bring to the still life barn this year. We love seeing kids woodworking, Lego builds and photos.  But don't forget we also do place setting judging, quilts, crochet or knit crafts, cross stitch, bead craft and of course sewing an outfit. Anyone can raise an animal but can you sew yourself an outfit?!

 As always we have a Quilts of Valor section as well and given our theme, we would love to honor veterans by donating as many quilt blocks as possible to this worthy organization. 

Another new category coming in 2023 is the Car Show Trophy category.  Please know that entries in this category are actually given away to the car show participants that win them, but start looking around for parts to cars that you can weld together into a trophy.  Just remember the trophy needs to fit in a car. 

So start planning and bring out your best to show us your stars, stripes and have some fun on some summer nights with us. 

Venue Rentals

Planning a wedding, family reunion or graduation and need a place to bring together a lot of people - look no further!  Maybe a family style company gathering away from the office but close to home, consider the fairgrounds. Planning a horse riding event?  We rent the arena out as well, the possibilities are endless. 

We offer rentals of the fairgrounds and buildings to anyone for any event where you need to bring people together.  We have a kitchen on site, bathrooms and plenty of parking. 

Just go to our forms page to see the rental agreement and contact our Fair Manager Sarah for more details at 509-276-2444
