CANFIELD, Ohio – The Canfield Fair received a $1 million grant last year from the Kusalaba Family Fund of the Youngstown Foundation to underwrite the second phase of construction at the Junior Fair Event Center.
The grant is being used to create additional space at the west end of the facility that will house offices and restrooms. The work is expected to be completed this summer.
The fair board of directors is now looking forward to phases 3 and 4, says board President Bob Jarvis.
The fair also inducted the inaugural class of the Mahoning County Agriculture Hall of Fame in 2022. The hall recognizes those who have made a significant impact on agriculture. The class included Darrel A. Bacon, Chester Bedell, Vernon E. Crouse, Elden R. Groves, J. Paul Good, William B. Phillips, David and Joanna Witmer, and Paul D. Witmer.
