Canfield Fair inspected rides and activities for the family

Posted: Updated:
CANFIELD, Ohio -

The Canfield Fair kicks off on Wednesday and there are plenty of activities for the whole family.

At the 171st Canfield Fair, there is something to crow about according to the fair board director Andy Frost.

In addition to the fair food, rides, games and 4-H animal exhibits, there will be more than 700 vendors with additional adventure on the Canfield fair grounds for kids.

"They have to go to 11 different spots throughout the fair and it's all agricultural. They'll get a stamp and milk a cow. They'll do different things," said Frost. 

A brochure will be provided at the agricultural stations with a prize at the end at Deerfield farms. 

Frost, who is a retired fire chief, says the fair rides are inspected and reinspected by the state and Bates brothers. 

"They'll inspect when they come in. They'll run test rides on them and then they'll inspect them when they leave. Bates has inspections every day," said Frost. 

The Canfield Fair is believed to be a family tradition that's enjoyed by over 300,000 people every year.

New to the fair this year are two resting stations for elderly folks to rest and hydrate themselves, in hopes of avoiding medical attention.

"It's that it's the end of summer and the beginning of fall, the concerts, everything about it. You see so many people here, you get to see the same stuff every year and then the new stuff every year is exciting too," said Kristen Scott from Columbiana.
