HAMILTON COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -
If you remember "where Paddock meets Vine at the big Indian sign," you know where to find the Hamilton County Fair, a five-day festival that brings the agricultural community that surrounds Hamilton County to the city.
For over 150 years, the Hamilton County Agricultural Society, whose first president was U.S. President William Howard Taft, hosts the Hamilton County Fair. While the fair was founded to allow local farmers share the latest in agricultural technology, as the city has changed, so has its mission. Today the Hamilton County Fair takes a strong educational approach with exhibits like the Milking Parlor which teach the next generation about the technological advances around them that living in a now-urban area might not otherwise experience.
