BURTON, Ohio (WJW) — Ohio’s oldest fair is moving forward as planned, event officials recently announced.

For its 198th iteration, the Geauga County Fair board says that the Great Geauga County Fair will take place over Labor Day weekend, running Sept. 3-7.

Due to coronavirus concerns, many fairs across the state, including the Ohio State Fair (as seen in the video above), have canceled.

Today, Gov. Mike DeWine announced that counties could decide on an individual basis whether or not to go forth with their fairs, but some restrictions will still be in place.

“Now more than ever we will need the support of our volunteers and community for a successful Labor Day weekend,” fair board secretary Paul Harris wrote in a statement.

Fans of the fair are asked to stay informed by heading to the event’s website, as plans may change in the months to come.
