WAUSEON, Ohio — The Fulton County Fair is back!

Rated the #1 Fair in Ohio in 2019 by the Ohio Fair Managers' Association, the Fulton County Fair is set to run September 3 - 9.  

In 2019, fair attendance was over 325,000 people, and fair officials say that weather permitting, they anticipate similar numbers this year.

2020’s fair had to be cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic last summer. In its place, fair fans were able to pick up their favorite fair food to go.

A full line-up of concerts and entertainment has been secured including appearances by country star Jake Owen, and classic rock icons Grand Funk Railroad and Little River Band.

In addition there will be tractor pulls, a demolition derby and KOI drag racing, as well as lots of free entertainment and music.
