Fairgrounds improvements are ready for county fair

| September 28, 2022

When the Coshocton County Fair opens on Friday, Sept. 30, there will be several new improvements waiting for everyone to see and hear.

Ron Seitz, junior fair director and vice president of the fairboard, said that the fairboard has been working hard to make improvements so the fair is even more enjoyable for everyone.  The biggest improvement that people will notice is the “big ride area” and the roads around the barns have been paved. “It was $135,000 for that,” Seitz said. “We got grants from the Coshocton Foundation, Montgomery Foundation and the Ohio Department of Ag.  The fair board paid for the rest.”

Seitz said they want to get more paving done and are looking for more grants and saving money to do that.

There will be Wi-Fi available everywhere on the fairgrounds. “Ohio TT is working on it and it will be ready by fair time,” Seitz said.

“We upgraded the sound system in Hunter Arena and the motor sports track with grants from the Coshocton Foundation and finished the upgrade of track for the truck and tractor pulls with help from William Albert Excavating,” he said.

Seitz shared that the truck and tractor pulls scheduled for Friday, Sept. 30 will have the highest county fair payout in the state.  They will be pulling on two tracks and OSTPA (Ohio State Tractor Pullers Association) will be crowning the winners of all class champions for their point series that night.

He also encouraged everyone to check their website or Facebook page for updates and a schedule. Schedules are also available in the premium books which can be found at many local businesses and at the fairboard office.

The Coshocton County Fair runs Friday, Sept. 30 through Thursday, Oct. 6 at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds on Seventh Street in Coshocton. Admission is $15 per person and includes grandstand events and mechanical rides.
