Get Creative and Show Your Artwork at the Summit County Fair
The annual Summit County Fair brings the community together for a week of food, fun, exhibits, demonstrations, contests, and rides. In addition to the demolition derby (always a local's favorite), the livestock showings, the 4H displays, parade, pie baking contest, and the little buckeroo rodeo, the Fair hosts the Fine Arts Tent which gives local artists the opportunity to share their creative work with the public. Admission to all Fair events is free and a full schedule of activities is available on the Fair website.
Fine Arts Exhibit submission categories include photography, oil/acrylic painting, watercolor, graphic arts, sculpture, pottery, glass and metal. Youth (grades 9-12) and adults are eligible for awards and prizes that offer ribbons and cash premium prizes.
Last year more nearly 80 artists submitted over 130 pieces that were seen by more than 1600 visitors.
