At the Fairboard meeting on 9/15/22, the idea was presented to move the fair forward one week.
For example, in the year of 2024 as of now the date of the fair would be July 27, 2024- August 3, 2024. With the proposed change the fair dates would be August 3, 2024 -August 10, 2024. This was proposed to the fair board due to the conflicts with Preble County Exhibitors struggling to be able to participate at both the local county fair as well as the Ohio State Fair.
If the Fair was moved forward one week every year then the exhibitors of Preble County would have a better opportunity to participate at the state level because the Preble County Fair would not be overlapping the Ohio State Fair any longer.
The fair board would love to have feedback from our community on this proposed change. Below we are asking for you to choose to either keep the fair the same, or move the fair forward one week. There is also a section where you can place your comments. Thank you.
