Historic Livestock Barn Closed at Clackamas County Event Center due to Structural Concerns

The historic Livestock Barn at the Clackamas County Event Center is closed for further notice because of structural deficiencies and public safety concerns.

The County Fair Board, after consultation with Clackamas County, closed the barn as a safety precaution during the recent snow storm and made the decision not to reopen after inspections raised questions about the condition of the facility.

The Livestock Barn was built in 1924 and has been a staple of many events at the Canby Fairgrounds, including the County Fair ever since.  In recent years, the building has shown signs of progressive decay including water damage to the roof and some foundation displacement.

The County Fair Board is making alternative arrangements for events currenctly scheduled at the building.  The building is owned by Clackamas County but managed by the County Fair Board.  The Clackamas County Fair and Event Center is undertaking a strategic plan study that includes evaluating the conditions of buildings and facilities.

No decisions have been made on the future of the Livestock Barn pending further structural analysis and estimates regarding repairing or replacing the facility.

It will remain closed until further notice.  For more information contact Laurie Bothwell, Executive Director, Clackamas County Event Center at 503-266-1136 or ccfair@wavecable.com

 

2014 Clackamas County Fair & Rodeo

 

Our Mission:

The Clackamas County Event Center, home of the Clackamas County Fair, has been a proud tradition since 1907, and is the County's major agricultural and industrial exposition.  The Fair Board and Staff's dedication and purpose is to provide a showplace for educational activities, healthful competition, recognition of our county youth, displays of better methods and products of agriculture, business, commerce, history and tourism.

No pets are allowed on the Fairgrounds at any time, but Service Dogs are welcome.  A service dog is any guide dog, signal dog, or other dog trained to provide assistance to a person with a disability.  Prior to allowing a service dog onto the Fairgrounds we need the owner to answer two questions: Is this service dog required because of a disability?  What is it trained to do to mitigate the disability? (example, guide dog for blind person).  Dogs whose sole function is to provide emotional support, comfort, therapy, companionship, therapeutic benefit or to promote emotional well-being are not service dogs and are not allowed on public grounds or in public buildings.

The Clackamas County Event Center is a Smoke-Free facility. There is no smoking allowed anywhere on the grounds or buildings.
