There aren’t many institutions that make it to 165 years old. But the Hamilton County Agricultural Society can proudly carry that flag.

In a city like Cincinnati, it is easy to take for granted the longevity of the Hamilton County Agricultural Society, but their tenacity and passion must be celebrated.

Established in 1819 by William Henry Harrison, the Hamilton County Fair, the oldest county fair in Ohio, was held in 1820. In 1855 it moved to the current location in the Carthage neighborhood.
