Ohio Expo Center & State Fair

Fodor's Review

It's not summer until you see the life-size butter cow at one of the largest state fairs in the country. Nationally known musical acts, one of the world's longest sky rides and the largest junior fair in the nation highlight the show. Agricultural displays, children's contests, tractor pulls, laser light shows, and, of course, the butter cow draw crowds as well.
