Mark your calendar - future Fair dates through 2017 have been announced!

The Ohio State Fair has been a favorite family tradition of many since 1850, bringing hundreds of thousands of visitors together each year to celebrate our great state. The annual exposition is home to big-name concerts, agricultural competitions, free entertainment, educational exhibits, sporting events, rides and food. The 2014 Ohio State Fair will kick off on Wednesday, July 23 and will end on Sunday, Aug. 3. At a meeting of the Ohio Expositions Commission, it was voted that the Ohio State Fair dates will be scheduled based on Labor Day and Ohio county fair schedules for the foreseeable future, rather than the fourth Wednesday in July as was previously in effect.

“We strive to maintain a great relationship with all parties involved in county and independent fairs including fair boards and staff, concessionaires and amusement companies.” said Ohio State Fair General Manager Virgil Strickler. “After thorough discussion and research, we are confident that these dates will be convenient for Ohioans and patrons of both the State Fair and their respective county fairs.”

The Ohio Expositions Commission officially voted the following dates into effect:

  • 2015 Ohio State Fair - July 29 through Aug. 9
  • 2016 Ohio State Fair - July 27 through Aug. 7
  • 2017 Ohio State Fair - July 26 through Aug. 6
