The Lake County Fair, held at the Lake County Fairground in Painesville
each August, has been delighting residents each year for over 90 years. The six-day event features livestock, live entertainment, a midway of rides, and lots of fair food, just to name a few attractions. The 2013 dates are August 13-18.
The Lake County Fair was first held, in a much smaller version, in 1850, just ten years after Lake County was formed from a portion of Geauga County. The current fair was created in 1912 and an event has been held every year since.
The many events of the Lake County Fair include a parade, live entertainment, horse shows, tractor pulls, livestock sales and competition, midway rides, and a host of fair food vendors.
Hours and Admission:
The Lake Country Fair is open from 8am to 11pm daily. The midway opens at noon. Admission to the grounds (2013 prices) is $8 for adults all day. Children age 12 and under are free. Midway rides and some grandstand events carry an additional fee. Parking is free.
