Everyone Can Participate At The Fulton County Fair

The Fulton County Fair has been going strong since 1858.

Drawing well over 250,000 people of all ages, it’s one of Northwest Ohio’s most popular summer events.

But you may be wondering how you can participate if you don’t own livestock, and if you’ve never grown a 100-pound tomato.

Not to worry. The Fulton County Fair has a host of contests that fairgoers of diverse ages, backgrounds and interests can participate in.

The fair offers a wide variety of musical entertainment, agricultural events, a demolition derby, The Lost Nations Rodeo Co. & Extreme Bull Riding Event, NTPA-Sanctioned Tractor and Truck Pulls, plus harness racing.

There are countless ways for virtually anyone of any age to participate at the fair.


The cornhole contest, for example, offers a simple and fun way to participate, no matter your skill level.

There are also opportunities to register for a Think Fast Trivia contest; or the little ones can flex their muscles with the Pedal Power Pull.

A basketball free-throw and 3-point shooting contest will take place Sunday at 2 p.m.

Participants can choose to shoot from the line, or behind the arc.

Age brackets range from the very young, to the young at heart!
