Spring has sprung here in the Upper Ohio Valley! Along with the greening of plants, the Ohio County Country Fair is going green!
In the near future, the Ohio County Country Fair website will feature an on-line registration section. This will cut down on paper and mailing times for our secretaries and contestants.
Please feel free to call the Extension Office at 304-234-3673 with questions when this becomes available.
Remember to pre-register for anything you may enter, registration times at the fair will take a bit longer this year as all registrations will be at the same location. Remember to please give thanks to our sponsors!
The OCCF is just over two months away!
On the 30th of August, we will gather to thank our many sponsors and fair board members for there hard work and dedication to the mission of promoting agricultural education to an urban population.
Please visit the website for a list of sponsors and be sure to thank them!
Also entry forms are available for competitions, please get them in as soon as possible.
