Mon 7/30-Sun 8/5
This year the Medina County Fair turns 173 years old. Soon, once all that admission box-office adds up, it can afford to buy tickets to Hamilton.
Attractions for the 2018 edition includes pygmy goats, numerous live bands (headliner is country-and-western’s Kane Brown with Smithfield), 4-H displays, hay-bale decorating, a beer garden, a demolition derby, competitive doughnut-eating, “poultry agility,” clog dancing, and dog-and-pony shows that are — actual dog and pony shows.
Also truck/tractor pulls! But new this year is the uncanny, lifelike animatronic dinosaurs of Dino-Roar. Back in the day, Survival Research Labs would film such menacing robots in combat against trucks and tractors call it modern art.
Gate tickets are $6 for ages 12 and over, $3 for ages 2-11. Special discount days are set aside for veterans and seniors. Know that big-grandstand events like headliner concerts and vehicle mayhem are separately ticketed.
