The new site will cover 38 acres and will move to Judge Arthur O. Fisher Park in Jefferson Township.

“This is great for the agricultural society because it means we won’t have to move twice,” said John Yancik, Agricultural Society Board president. “We’re looking forward to celebrating the fair’s more than 160-year history at this site this summer on July 10-15 and the new site in 2018.”
