Decision on Coshocton County Fair coming
COSHOCTON – The board of the Coshocton County Fair met on Saturday to discuss plans for the fair. The next regular board meeting is Aug. 17. Any official decisions regarding the format and activities for the fair would be made at that time.
In an announcement on July 28, Gov. Mike DeWine reduced all county fairs in Ohio to junior fairs only. This means youth can present livestock and other projects, but there would be no grandstand events, games, rides or other entertainment.
The Holmes County Fair is happening this week and is exclusively focused on junior fair activities. Admission is free and there is about 20 food vendors. Eighteen different junior fair shows will be held through Saturday with an annual livestock auction on Thursday and Friday.
