The 2021 Canfield Fair will be held September 1-6, 2021. This year is the 175th anniversary of the Canfield Fair, Ohio’s largest county fair. The fairgrounds cover 350 acres, with a wide variety of exhibits, rides, livestock, crafts and the best fair food you’ll ever eat!
This year, the Canfield Fair welcomes two headlining acts to the Grandstand. Grammy-winning country star Darius Rucker will perform on Sunday, September 5 at 8pm. American rock group Shinedown will perform on Monday, September 6 at 7pm.

Flock to the Fairgrounds
A community art project, Flock to the Fairgrounds, will celebrate 175 years of Canfield Fair traditions. The project features six-foot tall replicas of the iconic rooster standing on “the big rock.” Select area artists have transformed the statues and the finished flock will make its debut at the 2021 Canfield Fair. The individual roosters will then be moved to locations throughout the Mahoning Valley for public display through October 2021. The flock will be united one last time—at a live auction in November 2021.
NEW Canfield Fair App

On Friday, September 3, the World’s Largest Demolition Derby returns to the Canfield Fair at 8pm. Cheer on dachshunds in the 3rd annual Wiener Dog Derby on Saturday, September 4 at 11am.

A Visit to the Past
Don’t forget to include a visit to the Western Reserve Village area, located on the western edge of the fairgrounds near Route 46. There you will find a recreated village showcasing what life was like in the mid-1800s. Ten historic buildings surround a village green, plus take a look at the steam engine with rail car and caboose. Just across the way, you will find the Carriage Museum, which houses some wonderful historic treasures.
