Canfield Fair begins Wednesday

The fair runs through Monday, September 5

Even though the gates don't officially open until Wednesday, the Canfield Fairgrounds was busy Monday as preparations are underway.

CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – The 170th annual Canfield Fair opened its gates Wednesday.

Animal showing and judging will continue throughout the day. A cheerleading demonstration, featuring squads from several local schools, started around 11 a.m.

The Happy Together concert, featuring Flo and Eddie from the Turtles, starts at 8 p.m. Wednesday at the grandstand.

Monday, the Demolition Derby was canceled due to unforeseen circumstances. In its place, The Willis Clan will headline a free grandstand concert at 5:30 p.m. No tickets are required for the show.

The Willis Clan is a family of 12 children whose performances are a blend of the family’s Irish roots as well as other music and dance genres. The family rose to fame on the TLC show, The Willis Family.

People who had tickets to the Demolition Derby will be given the chance to exchange their tickets for Friday’s Demolition Derby or receive a full refund. All exchanges and refunds can be made by calling the Fair office at 330-533-4107.

The fair runs through Monday, September 5. Gates will be open each day — from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Tickets cost anywhere from $3 to $8, depending on the day.  Parking is always free.
