Not sure what you've been told about the state fair, but theres pretty much hellish traffic and tons upon tons of people. I live in columbus, and totally avoid 71 during the fair, let alone the fairgrounds.

I am much more in to the small town (county) fairs. FYI Pataskala street fair next week, nice small town fair just east of columbus. Stop by and gamble (donate) with the fire department.

If you like fairs, Canfield is the fair to go to in this state. The only good site at the State Fair is the DNR exhibit. Everything esle is a hassle to see after 12pm. Pay to park, traffic, thugs and ruffians, stuffy animal exhibitors (for the most part) and the list goes on.

The State keeps making it worse. 3 years ago they tore down the motor sports stadium, then the shortened it to 9 days. The state highway patrol used to handle all of the parking and it was well run. Now it all pretty much stinks.

I used to go several times a year back in the 70's. Always had a good time. But when they tore out the track and grandstands to make room for an bigger midway, I quit going as much. In fact, I've only been there a couple of times since. Yea, part of the reason is because I moved out of Columbus. But I took my kids once and my wife and I went once by ourselves. Probably won't be back for a long time. Its not worth the drive.
