Over the past year, despite dealing with many activities and events being cancelled including the Senior Fair activities in 2020, the Directors have continued to make improvements on the grounds such as new LED lights in the buildings with funding opportunities made available through AEP. Work also continues as we update the antiquated waterlines on the south side of the Fairgrounds.
In February of 2020, the Directors passed a motion for the price structure of the tickets for the 2020 Fair designating a portion of the ticket sales would be used for improvement projects on the Fairgrounds. As you will remember, the 2020 Fairfield County Fair was a Junior Fair only and no admission was charged to the Junior Fair exhibitors and their families. Fast Forward to April 2021 . . . plans are currently being made for the return of a FULL FAIFIELD COUNTY FAIR in October!!
Today, if you would like to support the efforts of the Fairfield County Agricultural Society you are invited to become a member of the Society by purchasing a membership ticket which will allow you the opportunity to make entries, provides you with admission tickets for every day of the Fair and the ability to vote in the annual November election of Directors. Those membership tickets are $25.00 and are available now Monday thru Friday from 8:30 until noon at the Fairfield County Fairboard Office located on the County Fairgrounds.
With Governor DeWine beginning to open up restrictions of County Fairs and allowing the return of a Full Fair in 2021 the following fees will be in place for admission and exhibition to the 2021 Fairfield County Fair which is scheduled for October 10-16. Single day General admission tickets are $7.00. Parent Passes good for the week will be $20.00, Advisor Passes good for the week will be $20.00, Exhibitor Tickets good for the week will be $25.00, Senior Tickets (Wednesday only) $3.00. Please note parking on the grounds is included in the price of the ticket.
