Last night at the Montgomery County Agricultural Society Board of Director’s Meeting, the Fair Board unanimously voted to move forward with the planning of a traditional fair in 2021. They are committed to bringing a family friendly event back into the July spotlight in our community. They are also committed to offering a safe environment by following Governor DeWine’s guidelines that are in place in July.
“We are so excited to bring the county fair tradition back to life in Dayton in 2021” said Mark Jimison, Board President of the Montgomery County Fair Board
Many fair attendees and Jr. Fair Board Members are excited to participate in the deep-rooted traditions surrounding 4-H & FFA. Our mission is to serve our community by promoting agriculture, youth, and adult development through the fair and educational programs, and to also provide a rental venue for our community. “There is no doubt that 2021 was hard on us all, both financially and emotionally, but we are ready to get back in the saddle and bring our fairgrounds back to life.” says Lori Page, Executive Director
“Being able to see our fair re-open again is a beacon of hope and gratitude towards all that we’ve done so far as community. I’m excited to see everyone’s smiling (masked) faces the Fair this year!” said Mackenzie Hoog, 2021 Ohio Fair’s Queen & 2021 Montgomery County Fair Queen
“The Montgomery County Fair has always been one of my favorite times of the year. I am glad the kids will get to exhibit their animals this year and continue traditions we have had for over 100 years now. After all the cancellations and darkness we have been through, it is nice to finally see a light at the end of the tunnel” said Taylor Thomas, former 4-H Exhibitor & Jr. Fair Board Member
