The Belmont County Fair

The Belmont County Fair has been a family tradition since 1849. The Belmont County Agricultural Society invites you to come to the fair and celebrate the youth of our community as they share their goals and accomplishments. The fair showcases our youths best and provides amusements and entertainment that will give all thrill seekers something to get excited about. As our fairgrounds grow, we feel that there is no better place like ours to let your hair down, kick up your heels and call this place home. Come and enjoy a week of action packed fun!

The National Pike Wagon Train is an annual activity sponsored by the Belmont County Tourism Council.
