Due to the pandemic, there will be no Ohio State Fair this summer.
RichlandSource.com reports, the State Fair, which drew around 1 million people last year, will take a one year hiatus due to COVID-19.
So the next question is - What about the Richland County Fair, which is scheduled for August 9th - 15th ?
Richland County Fair Board President Gary Blum said no decision has been made yet and they have a meeting set for next Tuesday. Blum said he feels there could be an abbreviated fair, if anything.
There hasn't been any events held at the Richland County Fairgrounds, so the board has been able to saving roughly $9,000 on insurance costs.
