Ohio State Fair to Feature Heritage Breeds of Poultry


COLUMBUS -   Heritage breeds of poultry will be on display July 27-31 at the Ohio State Fair Poultry Building.

A “heritage breed” is defined as one which was recognized by the American Poultry Association (APA) prior to the 20th century. Breeds come in a variety of sizes and colors, and each display will have a placard explaining its history and purpose.

Displays will consist of hundreds of birds shown by Ohio exhibitors. These historic breeds will compete for prizes and championships.

The Ohio Expo Center is proud to host the Ohio State Fair. With a spectacular midway, big-name entertainment, hundreds of exhibits and one of the largest junior fair shows in the nation, the 2011 Ohio State Fair will run July 27 - August 7.
