Clackamas County Event Center Is A Hot Spot For Events

Clackamas County Fair and Event Center began in 1907. Moving to its current location in Canby Oregon, South Clackamas County in 1908. Clackamas County is a beautiful county spanning urban, mountain, and valley regions, just as diverse is the Clackamas County Fairgrounds & Event Center (CCEC). 

The mid-August County Fair draws 130,000 annual attendees and hosts The Canby Rodeo, which made its fair debut in 1958, and has grown into a nationally recognized PRCA rodeo. The Rodeo draws world-champion athletes and spectators from all over the world.
