Clarion

Clarion – Wednesday, July 15

Clarion is the county seat in Wright County, home to nearly 3,000 Iowans, and the nation’s largest egg producer. The town has deep roots in agriculture and is actually the birthplace of the four-leaf clover emblem used by the 4-H Clubs of America.

Clarion’s downtown features several buildings built in the 1800s which houses many local businesses including hair salons, boutiques, restaurants, a photography studio and much more. The center of the business district is the Wright County Courthouse, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Festival in the Park is Clarion’s annual celebration held the 2nd week in June. The two-day festival features family fun, food and entertainment including a pancake breakfast, vendor fair, 5k, music in the park, care show and a town parade.

There will be plenty of camping for all registered riders in the designated campgrounds that is situated fairly close to the evening activities. These campsites will be listed in the future.
