What to Expect from the Canfield Fair

Improvements Planned at Canfield Fairgrounds

CANFIELD, Ohio – With the Canfield Fair just a few months away, the fair board is making several improvements to the fairgrounds.

A vacant house on the southwest corner of the grounds was razed a few weeks ago after it was used for a controlled burn training exercise by Cardinal Joint Fire District. Another controlled burn is planned for the pumpkin barn.

Upcoming work will include replacing the fence around the racetrack and replacing the doors to the rabbit and poultry buildings. The coliseum at the north end of the fairgrounds will be painted and pressure washed.

For this year’s fair, which will take place Aug. 26-Sept. 2, the popular pumpkin display and the commemorative photo sign will be in the grange building, about 50 feet from its usual home.

“Keeping the fairgrounds updated and welcoming is paramount for the Canfield Fair Board and a continual conversation that we have throughout the year,” said Dave Mannion, board president. “The grounds need to look their best when we have over 300,000 of our closest friends on the property.”

The Canfield Fairgrounds consists of over 350 acres and more than 70 buildings.
