Ohioans can start planning visits to all of their favorite fairs across the state. The Ohio Department of Agriculture released the official dates Tuesday for the 2020 fair season, which includes Ohio’s 94 county and independent fairs and the Ohio State Fair.

The Highland County Fair will be held Sept. 6-12.

The Paulding County Fair will kick off the 2020 fair season on June 13, and the season will wrap up on Oct. 17 with the Fairfield County Fair.

In addition to setting and approving the dates for the independent and county fairs, the department is responsible for helping to assure the safety of fair amusement rides, monitoring livestock shows to help assure honest competition and coordinating animal health efforts with local veterinarians.
