The 2016 Ohio County Country Fair is just days away! We want your picture to share at the fair!
Take a selfie or a photo at the fair and upload it to our Facebook page along with where you are from! Let's see how many pictures and states we can get in a just few days.
If you see a fair board member, see if they want to take a photo. I know I will take some!
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!
