Ohioans and out-of-state visitors alike are invited to discover the Ohio State Fair with great food, fun games, thrilling rides, educational activities, friendly competitions, concerts, agriculture and so much more!

Ohio Farm Bureau will be partnering with the Little Farmers exhibit this year, while the Ag & Hort Building gets a much-needed refresh as part of the overall Expo Center & Fairgrounds enhancement.

Little Farmers takes place daily from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. on the Voinovich Livestock & Trade Center Lawn.

This hands-on educational exhibit, targeted toward children ages 3-10, allows youth to explore different aspects of Ohio agriculture. Families will navigate through eight different stations featuring simulated animals, real grains, gardening, and more, with the opportunity to pick a small prize at the final station.

Ohio Farm Bureau, Nationwide and Farm Credit Mid-America are partners in the annual Dean’s Charity Steer Show, taking place July 30 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Voinovich Livestock and Trade Center at the Ohio Expo Center and State Fair. The team name is Partners for Ohio Agriculture and team captain is Dan Wagner, president and CEO of Farm Credit Mid-America. Other team members are Kaylee Jennings, from Clermont County, and Matt Reese, editor of Ohio’s Country Journal.

The show raises support for Ronald McDonald House Charities. Teams will exhibit steer for a chance to win one of five awards.

The Ohio State Fair is possible thanks to the hard work of thousands of staff members, exhibitors, volunteers, vendors, partners, performers, concessionaires, youth leaders and sponsors.
