Construction Is Starting On Revamped Buildings At The Ohio State Fairgrounds

Get ready for an exciting transformation at the Ohio State Fair! The first phase of the fairgrounds update, a project known as Expo 2050, is kicking off.

One of the most exciting additions to the fair will be the brand-new “Ohio showcase” building. Imagine strolling into a vibrant space filled with the irresistible aromas of regional Ohio delicacies.

This food hall will not only satisfy your taste buds but also celebrate the rich culinary heritage of the Buckeye State. Additionally, the building will house a state history museum, providing visitors with an immersive journey through Ohio’s captivating past.

But that’s not all – a state-of-the-art agriculture building is also on the horizon. This new structure will serve as a hub for community groups and exhibits, fostering a deeper connection between fairgoers and the agricultural heartbeat of Ohio.

For those who have marveled at the butter cow exhibit in the dairy products building, get ready for an even more enchanting experience. The beloved butter cow will be showcased in a better way, promising fair attendees an enhanced and more enjoyable viewing experience. The renovations to that building are just one aspect of the broader initiative to elevate every facet of the fairgrounds.
