Brighton United Methodist Church has been part of our fair since 1963, hosting a booth under the grandstand. Unfortunately, staffing that booth has become an issue for them and they will not be returning for the 2022 fair. We will be taking proposals and bids for this space. If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please send your menu and bid to 23000 Fairgrounds Road, Wellington, OH 44090 or email to


Just a reminder that Sunday, August 22, is still free gate admission. It is part of our official dates because there will be harness racing held that day at 4:00 pm. The opening ceremonies and crowning of the Junior Fair King & Queen have also been moved to that day @ 5:00 pm. Other than that, it is as it always has been – there is no charge, rides and commercial vendors will not be open, and food vendors can open at their discretion.
