State Fair Coming to Carson City

Posted: Updated:

Carson City supervisors have approved $75,000 in seed money for a Nevada Sesquicentennial Fair next year in the capital city, according to the Nevada Appeal.

The Nevada Appeal reports supervisors took the action Thursday after Senior Judge Robey Willis said the fair has generated considerable enthusiasm.

Willis says he hopes the fair slated for July 30th to August 3rd at Fuji Park will help jump-start his proposal for Carson City to hold an annual state fair.

Next year's fair will be held in conjunction with a statewide celebration of Nevada's 150th anniversary of statehood.

Willis has said "Reno dropped the ball" in allowing the annual state fair to die in recent years, and he thinks rural Nevadans would rather come to a smaller city such as Carson City anyway.
