WELCOME
 
On behalf of the Medina County Fair Board I'd like to invite you and your family to join us at the 173rd Annual Medina County Fair. With 172 years of fair experience behind us, this years fair promises to be one of the best. Feel free to look through our Entry Book and enter one or more of the many classes for exhibition. If exhibition is not for you, then check out a 4-H livestock show, grandstand event, or simply enjoy some great fair food and atmosphere. 
  At this time I'd like to personally thank all the volunteers, exhibitors, OSU Extension, sponsors, concessionaires youth of Medina County and all the fair goers for their support and participation. Without all of you, our fair would not be the same.
  Remember the color of ribbons you earn will fade, but the family memories you make will last a lifetime.
                                             Sincerely,
                                             Michael J. Gall, President
