Ohio State Fair Tickets
Ohio State Fair is one of the largest State Fairs in America. Its roots can be traced back one and a half century ago, in 1850. The Ohio Legislature created an Ohio State Board of Agriculture in 1946, which consisted of fifty plus members. The board’s acts included the establishment of a District Fair. In the successive years, district fair at Wilmington, Ohio and at Xenia, Ohio was seen in the picture. The success of these district fairs led to the planning of a State Fair. So, after only 2 years, the very first Ohio State Fair’s dates were announced.
