PICKAWAY COUNTY, Ohio (The Cultivator) – The Pickaway County Fair celebrates 75 years, kicking off this weekend what would traditionally be the start of fair season. While things look different this year with many fairs being canceled, postponed, or modified… it’s exciting to know that the Pickaway County Fair is continuing on after the shutdown left many questioning if it would happen.
While the Pickaway County Fair may be continuing, there will be some differences this year. Social distancing will be encouraged and safety measures such as extra hand sanitizing stations throughout the grounds will help guests keep their hands cleans, and the usage of masks while on the grounds is encouraged. Limited seating will be available in Heritage Hall, the Amphitheater, and the Grandstand.
On June 20th and 21st, guests can enjoy visiting the Pickaway County Fair for free and enjoy some of the great events that will be taking place throughout the weekend. The primary focus of this weekend is the moving in of the animals and the harness racing that will take place on both Saturday and Sunday. Rides will not open until Monday evening.
Visitors will still get to enjoy the fun events, live music, the animals, the delicious fair foods, and all the rides that the fair has provided for many years.
Be sure to show your support to the fair this week and while you’re there, don’t forget to pick up a copy of their updated schedule, The Circleville Herald’s book, as well as our special coloring booklet edition of the Dimple Times for the Pickaway County Fair – which features activities and coloring pages enjoyable for all ages and a map to help you around the grounds.
The Pickaway County Fair runs June 20th – June 27th and opens daily at 8am.
Harness Racing starts this weekend at the Pickaway County Fair and the full fair starts Monday. Be sure to pick up one of our fair coloring and activity editions that includes a map. Thanks to Scioto Valley Coffee, Kingston National Bank and The Savings Bank for jumping in at the last minute to help make the booklet a reality.
