Planning your visit
Check the Ohio State Fair website (www.ohiostatefair.com) before you go for hours, maps, admission prices, discounts and information for groups.
Make a budget for your visit. Know how much you expect to spend for parking, admission, food, gifts and other expenses. Include some padding, but try to keep to your budget. Leave unneeded credit cards at home.
The fair offers a wide variety of concessions with just about any type of food or drink you could want, but fair visitors are allowed to bring their own food and drinks. This is especially helpful if anyone in your group has special dietary needs.
The Ohio State Fair welcomes guests with wheelchairs and motorized mobility scooters. Limited rentals are available on a first-come, first-served basis. A free shuttle service is available to help visitors get around the grounds.
Bring any necessary medications with you in a sealed, waterproof container. Also bring a list of the medications you take, along with dosage information.
The Ohio State Fair does not allow pets on-grounds during the Fair.
