What happened to the original Nevada State Fair?

The original Nevada State Fair was first held in 1874 and was Nevada's longest running event (136 years) until it's last year in 2010. In March of 2011, the fair's board of directors decided the show could not go on, citing a large debt and inability to raise funds necessary to continue.

In August of 2013, a new non-profit organization was formed to revive the tradition, bringing this event back to the Silver State.
