County Fair

Ohio County Fairs

Almost each of the 88 counties in Ohio have a County Fair. County fairs reflect the ever-changing agriculture industry, bringing state-of-the-art technology to farmers through lectures, exhibitions and show-ring competitions.

Much of the success of early fairs reflects the emphasis of providing something for the entire family. Fairs were, and still are, major celebrations, bringing nuggets of knowledge, friendly competition, entertainment and a sense of community to town in a once a year gala event! Over the history of county fairs, people have steadily moved away from farms and into factory and office jobs. Fairs reflect this change.

Today’s county fairs are agriculture and much more. While striving to hold on to their agriculture roots they also work to reflect the changing atmosphere among participating youth and adults. Fairs are still used as a venue for farm families to showcase their finest, but are also full of non-traditional exhibits.
