The Great Geauga County Fair: Cheap Date

The 190-year-old fair kicked off Thursday and runs until Labor Day.

Check back every Friday for Cheap Date: one weekend event or activity that won't break the bank.

Fairs are a highlight of summer, and on one of the final weekends of the season, there's one Northeast Ohioans can turn to celebrate the warm weather before the leaves start to turn.

The Great Geauga County Fair kicked off Thursday and runs through Labor Day, Sept. 3. Entertainment includes a demolition derby, one of the fair's signature events, a truck pull, a freestyle motorcross event and a rooster crowing contest.

And of course there are rides and a variety of food vendors. There's also some history. The fair, at 190-years-old, is considered the oldest in Ohio.

When: 9 a.m. to midnight Thursday, Aug. 30 through Monday, Sept. 3. Visit the fair website for detailed ride and event hours.
