2020 County Summer Fairs near Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio; Northern Kentucky; and Southeastern Indiana

Fairs_2020Summertime definitely means attending a county or state fair. Steeped with tradition, fairs are full of the sights and sounds of farm livestock, fast rides and carnival-style food and games. And we cannot forget entertainment like the demolition derby, monster truck shows and tractor pulls. Gardeners and cooks show off their best items at fairs, too, seeking a coveted blue ribbon from judges.

Be sure to have fun at one of these local county throughout Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio; Northern Kentucky; and Southeastern Indiana.

Due to the coronavirus, please check with your favorite fair before heading out to make sure it has not been cancelled or postponed.
