Plan a Visit to These 9 County Fairs and Festivals Around Ohio

2021 County Fairs in Ohio - Cutler Real Estate

With a charming mix of carnival rides, farm animals, and tasty food treats, county fairs are an iconic part of Midwest summers. In Ohio, these lively events date back literally hundreds of years. Mark your calendar for these must-see county fairs in Northeast Ohio, Columbus, and Cincinnati.

Medina County Fair

735 W. Smith Rd., Medina, OH 44256

Better late than never! After a year off, the Medina County Fair is celebrating its 175th anniversary during its 176th year. Traditional events, such as the popular livestock shows and bull riding contest, pay tribute to the fair's past. Live concerts, drag racing, and motocross are some of the entertainment options that highlight Medina's present. Kids can show off their creativity in coloring, art, writing, and hay bale decorating contests. The Medina County Fair runs from Monday, August 2 through Sunday, August 8. Admission is $7 for everyone 12 and over and $3 for kids aged 2-11.

Lorain County Fair

23000 Fairgrounds Rd., Wellington, OH 44090

Another Northeast Ohio tradition observes a milestone as the Lorain County Fair, second largest in the state, reaches its 175th year. Each summer, people head to the fair for one last celebration before Labor Day leads into fall. One of the event's goals is to educate the public about animals with showings of horses, sheep, and poultry, along with auctions and skill demonstrations. Evening entertainment includes live music, derbies, and a rodeo. Enjoy thrilling midway rides for only $1 each or $20 for unlimited rides. Gates open at 8 a.m. each day from Sunday, August 22 to Sunday, August 29. Admission is $6, with no charge for kids aged 8 and under. A $30 season pass is good for seven admissions.

Great Geauga County Fair

14373 N. Cheshire St., Burton, OH 44021

The Great Geauga County Fair is just shy of two centuries, but it's twice as much fun as fairs half its age. Founded in 1823, the Great Geauga is the oldest continuous county fair in the state as well as one of the oldest agricultural fairs in the United States. There's fun for the whole family at the Natural Resource Area, which features demonstrations and activities centered around wildlife and environmental awareness. And what's a fair without an apple pie-eating contest? If you're feeling lucky, try your hand at the other family-friendly competitions, including Diaper Dash, Kiddie Tractor Pull, and 4-H 5K. The fair takes place Thursday, September 2 through Monday, September 6. Admission is $10 for ages 7 and above. Buy advance tickets online to save $2 and avoid the lines.

Hartford Fair

14028 Fairgrounds Rd., Croton, OH 43013

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Tom Bilcze (@tombilcze)

Billed as the "Biggest Little Fair in the World," the Hartford Fair encompasses Licking County along with portions of Delaware and Knox counties. The fair also has a reputation as a reunion spot, as families use the occasion for annual gatherings of relatives from across the distance. Fans of motorsports are in seventh heaven with truck and tractor pulls, autocross, demolition derbies, and monster truck rallies. Even during the fair's earlier days, racing was the main attraction, including a foot race when Maggie McComb beat out William Lane. Fair days run from Sunday, August 8 through Saturday, August 14. Admission is $8 for ages 8 and above.

Delaware County Fair

236 Pennsylvania Ave., Delaware, OH 43015

Who says the outdoor fun has to end with summer? Enjoy some post-Labor Day delights at the Delaware County Fair. Horses are the main event here, starting with the parade that kicks off the festivities and right up to the Little Brown Jug, the fair's signature harness race. The impressive motorsports complex is the site of demolition derbies, truck pulls, and even school bus races. With a wide range of activities from eating contests and putt-putt golf to scavenger hunts and kids' crafts, there's something for everyone. This year's fair is scheduled for Saturday, September 18 through Saturday, September 25. 

Hardin County Fair

14134 Letson Ave., Kenton, OH 43326

September means back to school, and kids won't need any encouragement to attend the "classroom" at the Hardin County Fair. One of the top activities is COSI on Wheels, a traveling outreach program that offers a variety of dynamic interactive experiments. A petting zoo and Columbus Zoo exhibit provide opportunities to get up close and personal with some fascinating animals and birds. Eli the Magician stars in two shows a day and strolls the grounds, delighting fairgoers with amazing tricks. These activities are all included in fair admission, which is $10 for everyone aged 9 and older. Fair dates are Tuesday, September 7 through Sunday, September 12. 

Hamilton County Fair

7700 Vine St., Cincinnati, OH 45216

Situated on 30 acres just north of Cincinnati, the Hamilton County Fair creates an interesting juxtaposition of agricultural and urban landscapes. City slickers get to learn about life on the farm, including a chance to try their hand at milking a cow. This year's grandstand events include go-kart racing and a soccer mom derby. Fire up your oven and prepare your best pies, cookies, breads, and cakes for the baking competitions. The Hamilton County Fair runs from Thursday, August 12 through Sunday, August 15. Admission is $10 per person, which includes all rides.

Allen County Fair

2750 Harding Hwy., Lima, OH 45804

On October 21, 1851, it was reported that a "vast throng" attended the first Allen County Fair at Faurot Farm. Today, more than 200,000 visitors attend the annual event, making it one of the top fairs in the state. One of the biggest draws is the top-name entertainment that takes the main stage each year. Vince Gill, Def Leppard, Alabama, and Reba McEntire are just a few of the stars who have appeared at the Allen County Fair. 2021 is no exception, with Brad Paisley as the headliner. Fair days are Friday, August 20 through Saturday, August 28. Admission is $7 for ages 7 and up.

Champaign County Fair

384 Park Ave., Urbana, OH 43078

The Champaign County Fair includes livestock shows, craft exhibits, and other traditional fair activities, but this year's event will also be a classic rock lover's dream. Opening night features a three-hour extravaganza with Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute bands. Fair dates are Friday, August 6 through Friday, August 13. Admission of $8 includes rides, while tickets for Rock the Fair are an additional $10.

Order Beautiful Custom Cookies from These Ohio Bakers

Custom Cookies Around Ohio - Cutler Real Estate

Few foods have the universal appeal of cookies, which are a comforting treat for kids and grown-ups alike. It's no surprise that people are turning to cookies to celebrate birthdays, weddings, graduations, and other life events. Make your special occasion even more memorable with custom cookies from these talented bakers around Northeast Ohio, Columbus, and Cincinnati.

Sepsi Sweets

Julie Sepsi wants everyone to have a sweet day. The home-based baker started Sepsi Sweets to do her part in achieving that goal. One of Julie's signature creations is a treat box made from sugar cookies and vanilla royal icing. The covered container is ready to be filled with M&Ms, Hershey Kisses, or any other small surprise. Julie has also used her popular sugar cookies for an updated take on the holiday gingerbread house. If you prefer cake, Julie is equally creative with cupcakes, including her custom-made DIY cupcake kits.  

Cookies by Courtney

As an ER nurse, Courtney spends her days helping people heal. During her off-hours, she puts a smile on people's faces with Cookies by Courtney. Her delightfully designed treats look more like keepsakes than edible items. Courtney's cookies have taken the whimsical shapes of basketball shoes, cassette tapes, and Margaritas to commemorate everything from showers to book releases. All cookies are individually heat-sealed in cellophane bags.

NV Sweets

Visit the Instagram page of NV Sweets and the first thing that leaps out is the array of vivid colors. Baker Nikki Vordem Esche goes beyond the standard palette of pastels to use primary colors and other bright hues on her eye-catching cookies. Recent creations from Nikki include "apples" for the teacher, strawberry cookies for a first birthday, watercolor volleyballs, and Mickey and Friends cookies that look like they were created at the Disney studio. In a truly inspired move, Nikki used her chocolate brownie cookie dough to make a box of chocolates that could have come from Godiva. 

Six One Four Sweets

Want to add a little international flair to your celebration? Choose some elegant and delicious French macarons from Six One Four Sweets. Macarons are delicate, perfectly round creations with filling layered between two meringue cookies. Dating back to the Renaissance, macarons lend themselves to a wide range of colors and flavors. Baker Alicia Perkins takes full advantage of the versatility of macarons, making them in a number of pastel colors with yummy fillings such as salted caramel, red velvet, strawberries and cream, funfetti, and buckeye. Traditional sugar cookies designed to fit your theme are also available.

AMAEzing Sweet Shoppe

Want your sweets disguised as savory treats? Ashley Combs of AMAEzing Sweet Shoppe recently created an entire cookie BBQ, complete with grills, hot dogs, burgers, oven mitts, and spatulas. Her other crossover designs include a cookie pizza and six-pack of beer. This past spring, associates from Proctor & Gamble ordered cookies from AMAEzing Sweet Shoppe to celebrate a five-year work anniversary. Ashley came up with a set featuring impeccable replicas of the logos from Pampers, Crest, Puffs, and other P&G brands. 

Poppy's Custom Cookies

No, Poppy's Custom Cookies does not bear the name of its owner, but poppies do symbolize the vibrant visual appeal of their products. Arielle developed her love of baking during high school, when she began making cakes and cookies for family and friends. Today, Arielle's hobby has grown into a successful business that allows her to stay home with her two daughters. Arielle recently thrilled someone else's daughter with birthday cookies incorporating the youngster's own artwork. Local businesses have ordered cookies with their logos to use as unique giveaways for customers.

SOHO Sugar Co.

When you want some sweet treats, you can't go wrong with a business that has "Sugar" built right in their name. SOHO Sugar Co. is an abbreviated version of the original name, "South of Home Cookies," reflecting the addition of candy and cakesicles to the offerings. During the pandemic, Jordyn Diebler used the time to meld her love of art and baking into a home-based business baking custom-made cookies for all occasions. Double the fun with themed candy boxes or a design-your-own "charcuterie board."

Cristy's Cookie Creations

While Cristy Bowles modestly refers to herself as a "hobby cookier," Cristy's Cookie Creations have been a big hit around Northeast Ohio. Her showstopper piece is an edible "flower arrangement," featuring incredibly intricate detail right down to the individual petals. Even kids too young to remember are charmed by her cookie-based recreation of the Muppet Babies Star Wars characters. Even Cristy's "regular" cookies, such as pumpkin spice latte, are a big hit.

Sugar & Icing Cookie Co.

If Stephanie Rosselot of Sugar & Icing Cookie Co. looks familiar, it may be because she was featured in the summer issue of Sweet & Saucy Living, an online magazine devoted to cookie-making. Stephanie finds that creating her edible works of art provides a welcome balance to her full-time day job as a high-school math teacher. Both jobs complement each other in Stephanie's beginning and intermediate cookie decorating classes, held at Share Cheesebar and McHarper Manor. 

That's the Way the Cookie Crumbles

Whether it's milk or coffee, are you a dunker? Or do you prefer your cookies as is?

Explore Ohio: 9 Small Towns to Visit this Summer

Small Towns Around Ohio - Cutler Real Estate

Northeast Ohio, Columbus, and Cleveland are noted for their vibrant urban settings and fast-paced lifestyles. When you want to slow down and get away from it all for a while, there's a whole new world just a short drive away. Spend a day or a weekend exploring some of these amazing small towns around Ohio.

Avon Lake

Waterfront towns may seem like summer-only destinations, but that's not the case with Avon Lake. The city itself measures only 11 square miles, but 220 acres of that area is covered with parks and other green spaces, making Avon Lake a visual splendor in any season. With its well-maintained boat launch and a fishing pier that's open year-round, Miller Road Park is a popular family-friendly spot for water activities, picnics, and relaxation. Stop in at Klingshern Winery, a local tradition since 1935, for an informal wine-tasting. 

Medina

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Medina Ohio (@ohiomedina)

Founded in 1818, Medina remains a picturesque representation of small-town America. Social, entertainment, and cultural activities still revolve around Main Street, lined with stunning Victorian-style architecture and delightful mom-and-pop stores. You'll find it hard to believe the region suffered not one but two debilitating fires in the 19th century. Learn more about Medina's history at the four museums located downtown. There's even a quaint town square park, highlighted by a gazebo that serves as the centerpiece of community events. 

Hinckley Township

Hinckley Township, named for original proprietor Samuel Hinckley, is home to a famed seasonal tradition that rivals Groundhog Day. Every year on March 15, as many as 50,000 people gather to observe Buzzard Day, when the birds return like clockwork. The official event began in 1957, and residents consider Buzzard Day the beginning of spring. Festivities are held at Hinckley Reservation, a worthy attraction in its own right. This southernmost Cleveland Metropark is known for Worden's Ledges, a fascinating series of sandstone ledge carvings depicting elements of local history.

Bexley

History and architecture are frequently entwined, with the town of Bexley being a prime example. The serene, tree-lined suburb of Columbus draws several visitors to view its impressive large houses and mansions. Jeffrey Park, a 40-acre natural woodland with a number of walking trails, is also the site of majestic Jeffrey Mansion, built in 1905 by a former mayor of Columbus. Northern Bexley is home to the official Governor's Mansion, a one-time private residence donated to the state in 1955. Just west of Bexley sits the Franklin Park Conservatory, a botanical garden featuring more than 400 species of plants along with a permanent collection of stunning glasswork by Dale Chihuly.

Delaware

Perhaps the town's own motto sums it up best: Delaware is "Hometown Living with a Modern Spirit." The parents of Rutherford B. Hayes, 19th president of the United States, were among the city's earliest settlers. In 1912, Delaware came within one vote of becoming the new capital of Ohio. The Historic Northwest District features an eclectic mix of architectural styles, from Federal and Queen Anne to Craftsman and Gothic Revival. More than 500 homes and carriage houses in the neighborhood are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Nearby, the thriving downtown area includes the Strand, one of the 10 oldest movie theaters in the country.

Granville

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by GACC (@granvilleoh)

If Granville reminds you of a charming New England town, you wouldn't be far off. The village was settled by a group from Granville, MA, who named their new home after their original one. But indigenous people inhabited the area more than four hundred years before. One of the notable local landmarks is the Alligator Effigy Mound, used by people of the Fort Ancient culture as a ceremonial site and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Other popular sites include the Bryn Du Mansion, Dawes Arboretum, and Granville Inn. Immerse yourself in local history at the Denison Museum, Granville Historical Society, and Robbins Hunter Museum.

Yellow Springs

People often describe Yellow Springs as having a mellow, 1960s-type vibe. Fittingly, the village was founded in 1825 by a collection of 100 families hoping to create a utopian community. Yellow Springs takes its name from an actual natural spring with a yellowish tint due to high iron content. You can view this landmark at Glen Helen Nature Preserve, which features other stunning scenery such as wildflowers, 400-year-old trees, and limestone cliffs with waterfalls. Enjoy a leisurely lunch at the Clifton Mill, with its rustic setting that includes a classic red, covered bridge.  

Lebanon

In its earlier days, Lebanon was a designated stagecoach stop for north-bound travelers. With historic buildings that house businesses such as the Black Horse Tavern, it's not hard to visualize those times. Since 1803, the Golden Lamb Restaurant & Hotel, Ohio's oldest continuously operated business, has hosted notable figures such as Charles Dickens, Barbara Bush, Mark Twain, Charles Laughton, and Kesha. Right across the street sits a library funded by Andrew Carnegie. Lebanon has such an authentic small-town feel that it served as the filming location for Harper Valley PTA.

Rabbit Hash

From the name to the setting, Rabbit Hash is as quirky and lovable as you might expect. Originally known as Carlton, the town took on the name of its signature dish to avoid confusion with nearby Carrolton. A French bulldog named Wilbur currently presides as mayor, continuing a longstanding tradition. As with many small towns, the community center of Rabbit Hash is the legendary General Store. In a concession to the digital age, the store does maintain an online shop, but the actual shelves are full of antiques, hand-woven towels, collectibles, and other fascinating items. Both the General Store and the Rabbit Hash Historic District can be found on the National Register of Historic Places.

Small Town USA

Small towns have been a rich source of material for pop culture, from movies and books to country songs. What's your favorite story about a small town?

Barn Wedding Venues Around Ohio - Cutler Real Estate

Barns have become a popular wedding venue as many couples – particularly millennials – turn away from more traditional, formal locations. If you're looking for comfort but still want chandeliers and other signs of elegance, a barn wedding may be the way to go. As a bonus, you'll also have access to acres of natural beauty that create beautiful photo backdrops to help you remember your special day.
  
Check out the following nine venues for a barn wedding in Ohio.

Northeast Ohio

The Barn at Wolf Creek

2361 S. Cleveland-Massillon Rd., Copley, OH 44321

The Barn at Wolf Creek provides an authentic rustic setting to host your wedding day. It's situated on approximately 5 acres that have been cleared to create a park-like atmosphere perfect for guests to gather. Views of the sunset as well as a nearby horse farm create the perfect backdrop. The barn has been completely renovated, along with the 1880s farmhouse and carriage house, which now boasts an art gallery. A covered deck is also available for dancing, cocktails, guest seating, or other needs.

White Birch Barn & Vineyard

7180 W. Smith Rd., Medina, OH 44256

A centuries-old barn that's been renovated and restored, along with a vineyard that was planted in 2016, are the centerpieces of White Birch Barn & Vineyard. The owner's grandfather built the barn, which has a charming and rustic feel, and its floor is still made from the original wood that was used in its construction. An open frame and beams were hand-hewn and add to the barn's beauty. Although it's located only a 10-minute drive from Medina Square, the venue is secluded, making it the perfect wedding site. Adding to its charm – and making for wonderful photo backdrops – are turn-of-the-century farming décor, a pond, and white birch as well as willow trees.

The Barn at Hart's Grove

5926 St. Route 534, Windsor, OH 44099

The Honeysuckle Ranch

1297 Wilson Dunham Hill Rd., New Richmond, OH 45157

The Honeysuckle Ranch is conveniently located about 25 minutes from downtown Cincinnati, but it truly feels like it's a world away. The working horse farm is located on 47 acres with trails, pastures, and park-like settings. In addition to the large barn, you'll also have access to an Amish-built gazebo and other buildings. A reception barn features twinkle lights and gorgeous décor to help create a magical setting.
