The Ohio State Fair has been held at the Ohio Expo Center since 1886 when the 37th annual fair occurred. Since the first Ohio State Fair was held in Columbus Ohio, the 35 subsequent state fairs occurred on various cities in the state. After the acquisition of more than 100 acres of land near a major railroad intersection in Columbus, Ohio, the Ohio State Fair moved to its current residence. The ground originally consisted of a half-mile track and 5,000-seat grandstand, the main exhibition hall, and dozens of barns to house hundreds of animals. More from this guide...
