Ohio State Fair Updates

Hey all,

Just a few things regarding OSF:

  • Because the Juneteenth holiday is close to the previous deadline, OSF has changed the deadline for livestock entries to June 21st (instead of June 20th)
  • Please note that the dog show is much earlier (~2 weeks before fair opens)
  • The Jr Swine Show requires market hogs to have an 840 tag and a premise ID

The schedule has been posted at: https://ohiostatefair.com/agriculture-livestock/livestock-schedule/

Species department rules, entry info, and exhibitor info/forms can be found at: https://ohiostatefair.com/agriculture-livestock/livestock/

Once updated:

Also, please remind your youth as enrollment season approaches, they MUST be enrolled in the project they want to exhibit at the state fair, even if the county doesn’t offer it at fair (i.e., swine breeding).

Happy Monday! 😊
