The 168th Ohio State Fair begins Wednesday in Columbus. This year, it’s about butter and biographies. Yes, the butter cow and butter sculpture, the latter of which has yet to be unveiled, are fair staples and will be on display again this year.
But biographies will too. For the first time, the Ohio State Fair and the Ohio History Center, which is located at the edge of the fairgrounds, will be joining forces to provide fairgoers who are interested in Ohio history with a special experience.
Alicia Shoults, assistant general manager of the Ohio Expo Center and State Fair, said this year, for the first time, fairgoers can also get access to the Ohio History Center as part of their admission to the fair.
