Ohio. Find It Here. at the Ohio State Fair

Another fantastic Ohio State Fair is in the books! At this year’s fair, the Development Services Agency/TourismOhio booth celebrated Ohio’s Year of the Trail and Ohio Adventure Trails. Fairgoers were especially delighted by a 20’ x 20’ floor map of Ohio. People of all ages lined up to take photos posing with props, including giant donuts and larger-than-life ice cream cones, standing atop their hometowns and favorite Adventure Trails.

Representatives from various stops along the Ohio Adventure Trails were present throughout the duration of the fair to highlight their businesses and distribute information. TourismOhio was pleased to distribute more than 1,500 Ohio Travel Guides to booth visitors who also had the opportunity to virtually visit 16 exciting destinations across the state using TourismOhio’s 360 VR Experience.

Through a partnership with 11 state agencies, fairgoers had the opportunity to participate in an electronic scavenger hunt activity and upon completion were eligible to enter to win an overnight stay at any of the Ohio State Park cabins.

For the first time at the fair, a new exhibition called the “Showcase of Ohio” was on display, featuring a collection of items from several destinations such as an Amish horse and buggy, a soapbox car from Ohio’s Soapbox Derby, and glass art from Toledo.
