170th Athens County Fair
Hello everyone, we wanted to update you on the 2021 Fair plans. We are planning a full Fair with 4-H, rides and entertainment nightly. Our Fair is slated as always the first full week of August, this year our dates are August 6-14, with rides starting on Monday when all inspections are complete ( expect late afternoon, as this is beyond our control). We are continuing to work on our livestock shows, these days are planned as they have been in the past, with the 4-H Livestock Sale on Friday. Please bear with us, as we will continue to follow State / Local mandates. Changes may arise related to Ohio Department of Agriculture and State of Ohio / Local guidelines related to this COVID Pandemic. As of now, we are planning on allowing camping the week of fair ( if you paid for camping for 2020, this will carry over to 2021). Thank you and we will continue to update as changes may happen.
6th - 14th
Pullorum testing will be on Thursday, July 29th @ 6 p.m. in the Poultry Barn. Fancy and Breeding chickens only; no turkeys, ducks or geese. Market Chickens do not have to be tested unless they are co-mingled with other poultry. This will be the ONLY opportunity for pullorum testing.
Dog Show Venue Change
The Dog Show has been moved from the Swine Arena to the Noah Cox Grooming Pavilion due to construction. The show is still on July 24th at 8:00 a.m.
