Rather than beginning the fourth Wednesday in July, the Ohio Expositions Commission has voted to schedule the 2015, through 2017 Ohio State Fair dates based on Labor Day and Ohio county fair schedules.
“We strive to maintain a great relationship with all parties involved in county and independent fairs including fair boards and staff, concessionaires and amusement companies.” said Ohio State Fair General Manager Virgil Strickler. “After thorough discussion and research, we are confident that these dates will be convenient for Ohioans and patrons of both the State Fair and their respective county fairs.”
Future Ohio State Fair dates:
2015 – July 29 through August 9
2016 – July 27 through August 7
2017 – July 26 through August 6.
The 2014 Ohio State Fair will be held Wednesday, July 23 through Sunday, August 3.
