Coshocton County Fair Board excited to host full event

| March 11, 2021

Thanks to Governor DeWine’s announcement that festivals and fairs can resume this summer, the Coshocton County Fair Board is making plans for a full fair this fall. The dates for the fair are Oct. 1-7.

Mary Knicely, secretary/fiscal officer for the agriculture society, said, “We are very excited that it appears we will be able to have a fair this year. At this time, we do not know what restrictions, if any, will be put in place. Hopefully, by October, we’ll be past any restrictions at all.”

Knicely also said that at this time, they are planning for a full fair, so all buildings, such as the art hall and ag hall, will be open. “We have heard only positive things from the community. I believe everyone is ready to get back to ‘normal’ as they say and having the Coshocton County Fair is a big part of that.”

Cherie Reveal has her fingers crossed that the fair will be back to normal. She is looking forward to setting up as a vendor in the commercial building.

When asked what the fair means to her, Mandy Brenly replied, “Four words – French fries. Sugar waffles.”

Julie Robinson and Becki Guinther are both waiting for fair food, too. Robinson said, “Italian sausage, French fries and funnel cakes. Fair food is the best!”

Guinther said she is happy for the kids to get to show and for “the food, especially the greasy fries with vinegar.”

The community won’t have to wait until fall for fun events at the fairgrounds.

“We are also in the process of planning monthly events on the grounds, beginning in May which we hope will be well-received by the public,” Knicely said.

According to their website, some of the events for the summer include a food war, fireworks, rough truck contest, demo derby, UTV rally and a monster truck show.

Knicely encourages everyone to check their Facebook page or website for more details.
