The Knox County Fair is one of Ohio's longest running agricultural fairs. The fair began in 1849, and continues to provide a showcase for the achievements of participants, and a good time for all fairgoers.

Join us for an unforgettable week at the 2013 Knox County Fair. From music and food to animals and rides, the fair offers something for everyone! The Knox County Fair not only highlights the awareness of agriculture as an important and continuing industry in the county, but also provides visitors with a unique family experience.

No visit to the Knox County Fair would be complete without walking through the Junior Fair buildings. It is here you will witness the culmination of projects completed by the county's youth involved in 4-H, FFA, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. Everything from woodworking and sewing projects to animals of all sizes are on display.

From the time guests pull through the gates, the sights, sounds and smells of the fair waft through the open windows inviting guests to explore all the excitement.

Make plans to bring your family to the 2013 Knox County Fair!

About The Fair History

During the past 70 years the Knox County Fair has continued to grow steadily, adding new buildings, activities and nationally-known entertainment on a regular basis. The new grandstand was erected in 1932 through a contract with The Mount Vernon Bridge Company. An outstanding "Centennial Fair" was held in 1949 which celebrated 100 years of fair activities in Knox County. The Junior Fair has become increasingly important during this period as well, providing a wide variety of opportunities for Knox County's young people to participate in worthwhile educational and recreational activities throughout the year. Students complete their experience by exhibiting projects during fair week.

In the early 1980's, several persons interested in preserving artifacts of area farming and rural life organized the Knox County Agricultural Museum on the fairgrounds. Its many supporters have helped this Museum to grow steadily over the pas 15 years, expanding the main building and bringing a log house and one-room schoolhouse to the Agricultural Museum site, which attracts thousands of visitors during fair week and other times throughout the year.

The Knox County Agricultural Society can be proud of its record of progress in the promotion and advancement of agricultural science. We look forward to many more years of service to the agricultural community of Knox County.
