The 179TH Greene County Fair begins its run Sunday, July 29, through Saturday, August 4, 2018 at the Greene County Fairgrounds, 120 Fairground Road. Xenia, OH.
From a country concert featuring chart topping group ‘Lanco’ to a pickle corn dog, the Greene County Fair literally has something for everyone.
“Some fairs around the state are urban, others rural. We are right in the middle with a nice mix of both in Greene County.” Said Dan Bullen, a Greene County Agricultural Society Director and handling PR duties. “We can’t wait for long time fairgoers or first timers to experience our fair, one of the oldest in the country.”
Couple of fun events and back by popular demand take place on Wednesday, August 1. First, at 3:30pm it’s the Diaper Derby Contest and at 5pm watch local officials and some of your favorite media personalities compete in the Swine Showmanship Contest. Both are hoots!
The Greene County Fair is the oldest fair west of the Alleghenies. A nice variety of rides, games, food & entertainment await fairgoers. Plus, the 4-H tradition continues with proud youngsters showing their prize-winning animals.
8am to 10 pm every day.
Daily Gate Admission $6 (9 and Under get in free with paying adult)
Weekly Ticket $30 allows re-entry to the fair all week.
