The first fair in Morris was held on October 10, 1895. The fair expanded to become a three-day event in 1921. However, in the 1930s the economic difficulties were such that the fair had to be canceled for five years. By 1938 that Morris Agricultural Society was again active and began organizing fairs again. The 1950 flood caused the fair to be canceled but compensation money was used to build a new grandstand, which set the stage for the subsequent developments of the Morris Stampede.
