Canfield Fair offers discount for survey participation

Posted: Updated:
CANFIELD, Ohio -

Five minutes could save you $2.00, if you want to get into this year's Canfield Fair for a discount.

The fair is collaborating with Youngstown State University on a survey that aims to study the economic impact of the fair on the Mahoning Valley.

Fair Board Director, George Roman III, said,"They are going to have volunteers at three of our major gates. They will be standing there with surveys in hand. It will take about five minutes to conduct the survey and go through all the answers. Those who participate will get a $2 off coupon to enter the fair."

The average cost to get into the fair is about $7.00.

Students taking part in the Hospitality Management program at Y.S.U.'s Human Ecology Department will be conducting the surveys, which will be voluntary.

"It's going to give us more information about where people come from, what their interests are when they come to the fair, what areas we can improve and that's what we've been looking for for the last number of years," said Roman.

It's not yet known if the surveys will be done during all fair hours, but fair officials believe it will likely be offered throughout most of the day, at the main entrances.

They hope to get about 3,000 to 5,000 participants.

Y.S.U. is expected to conduct the surveys again next year to compare and contrast information gathered from this year.
