CANFIELD, Ohio – The Canfield Fair and JAC Live, a division of the JAC Management Group that operates the Covelli Centre downtown, have formed a partnership to book the music acts for this year’s edition of the Labor Day weekend event.

In addition, the fair will work with Ticketmaster as the ticketing agent for all grandstand events, the fair board announced this morning.

The first act coming to the fair is scheduled be announced Monday at 7 a.m.

“The Canfield Fair and its board of directors knew that the time was right to make the entertainment stronger at the fair and to move to a partnership with organizations that have a larger, more global reach,” George Roman, Canfield Fair director, said in a statement.

Added Eric Ryan, president of JAC, “There are so many great traditions in this Valley, but none quite like the Canfield Fair. It is a true honor and privilege to be working on such an esteemed and highly regarded event.”

Ryan said one of his company’s “first order of business was to bring on Ticketmaster as our ticketing agent. The addition of a global company like Ticketmaster is beneficial beyond measure. They are the undisputed industry leaders and they will expand the methods of purchase in a clear online, phone, and outlet format.”

The Canfield Fair will celebrate its 171st year. It is Ohio’s largest county fair, attracting more than 300,000 over the course of its six-day run.
