From calf-roping to concerts, there is something for everyone at the 74th Hancock County Fair August 28 through September 2.

The fair, at 1107 East Sandusky St., features traditional livestock judging, baked-good auctions, horse shows and rides.

Other highlights include a Calf Scramble Wednesday at the North Grandstand, Tongue N Groove at the North Grandstand on Thursday, the Broken Horn Rodeo on Saturday at the Grandstand, and a Demolition Derby on Sunday at the South Grandstand.

Entire fair tickets are $21 and school tickets are $12 and $15 – all are available before the fair starts at the Hancock County Agricultural Society’s office at the fairgrounds.  Veterans and adults over 60 pay $2 the first day of the fair.
