The 167th edition of The Canfield Fair will open Wednesday, August 28th and run through Labor Day. The largest county fair in Ohio, The Canfield Fair offers something for everyone: exhibits-rides-great food-special events in the grandstand.
The fair has unique collections of antique, steam-powered equipment, as well as horse-drawn carriages, providing a glimpse of days gone by. Western Reserve Village on the south end of the fairgrounds is a reconstruction of pioneer life in Mahoning County, with the buildings brought here from their former locations and carefully preserved. Authentic herb gardens have been planted around the buildings, just the way they might have been when gardens were necessary to provide food and medicines. No charge is made for these educational and beautiful exhibits, as well as stage entertainment, fruit and vegetable displays, fine and domestic art, 4-H and Scout booths, exhibits and Educational Building displays. All of these are free with gate admission.
