The Belmont County Fair Has Been a Family Tradition Since 1849 first weekend of September means it is officially fair season in Belmont County, and the Belmont County Fair is among the best in the state. It is a celebration that everyone looks forward to and an event that brings our communities together. The 173rd annual Belmont County Fair is set to start on Labor Day, Sept. 5, and continue through Sept. 11.

The Belmont County Fair has been a family tradition since 1849. Fairgoers can see livestock exhibitions featuring rabbits, cows, horses, goats, chickens, and more.

They can indulge in a variety of food options such as funnel cakes, fresh-cut fries, lemonade, Italian sausage sandwiches, Stromboli’s, and kettle corn.

They can enjoy live entertainment and amusement rides that will give all the thrill seekers something to get excited about.

The fair supports our community by attracting visitors to the area. And let’s face it, the fair makes people happy. Kids and adults look forward to spending the day or a week at the fair making new friends and memories that will last a lifetime.

Once held on a 27- acre lot, the fair, now located off Roscoe Road, is situated on a 162-acres. This site can handle the large crowds that tractor pulls, rodeos, and concerts bring and the many families and visitors that come to see the livestock, exhibits, and amusements.

The Belmont County Agricultural Society hosts our county fair and, together with the Senior and Junior Fair Boards, spend countless hours of preparation and planning to operate a successful fair each year. They promote and support agriculture, industry, education, arts, and the youth of Belmont County.

County fairs bring people together to celebrate what is distinct about life in rural America. Thousands flock to the fairgrounds each year, which means countless eyes see the work our youth have put into their projects and entries. The support these children receive for their dedication motivates them to continue to show and pass on the love of the fair to future generations. The fair gives our area children center stage attention with a wide array of exhibits, contests, livestock shows, and entertainment. I invite you to join us in celebrating the youth of our community at the 2022 Belmont County Fair!
