Featured Entertainment

Cuyahoga County Fair Demolition Derby
This is one event where it kind of goes without saying that you shouldn't try this at home (unless you really don't like your home). Fire crews will be on hand, along with a grandstand packed with cheering fans, as The World's Largest Demo Derby returns to the Fair. If you thought Jack Nicholson knew something about road rage, you ain't seen nothin' yet! So come on out, and watch resale values plummet as an odd lot of maladjusted individuals crash tons of metal into eachother...
The McCartney Project
Show: 8:00PM​
Rachael Lust Hula Hooper
Various representatives from Hoopernova will be on hand all week, both to teach Hula Hooping and perform, including night glow hooping shows.  Fortunately for us, two of the best hoopers in the world are from the Cleveland area: Stee Bax and Rachael Lust (performing in the video below).  You will be amazed what each can do with a hula hoop.  Not only was Rachael the 2014 Female Hooper of the Year, she was also voted the campaign of the year for 2014.
ZoSo Led Zeppelin Tribute
Show: 8:00PM​
Seth Chwast Art Exhibit
Seth was diagnosed at 21 months as autistic and at age 18 was evaluated resulting in a career recommendation of "dry mopping".  At age 20 he took his first art class and by 23 was a featured artist on The Today Show.  Now 33, Seth has exhibited at the Cleveland Clinic, The Natural History Museum, hospitals, museums and universities throughout America.
Cleveland Blues Society
The Cuyahoga County Fair is excited to have The Cleveland Blues Society hosting the entertainment for our Beer Garden this year.  Some of the finest blues acts in Cleveland will be providing entertainment all week long, so check the Fair Daily Schedule for bands and performance times.

Professor Bubblemaker
Professor Bubblemaker's Marvelous Medicine Show combines the elements of magic, mentalism, comedy, history, a flea circus and of course lots of bubbles. Available in a purely entertainment show and an educational show which includes more historical information.
Little Miss and Mr Pageant
If the children are our future, find out why we're in really good hands.  These girls, boys, young men and women will amaze with their poise,  elocution,  and special talents.  From the adorable to the awe-inspiring, the Little Miss and Mr. Pageant is not to be missed.
Draft Horse Pull
Some horses just don't pull their weight, but these ones do.  You never hear anyone say a draft horse is strong as an ox for one good reason.. because they're stronger.  So come on out and watch these magnificent animlas show what they can do.
