August 2017

  • July 26-August 6 – Ohio State Fair

This event will showcase the Christmas tree industry with the state contest and over 20 trees on display for the 10 day event.  Who will be this year’s state fair champion?  We’ll let you know in late July!

Growers will also have the opportunity to work four-hour shifts to promote real Christmas trees to fair goers.  One of the highlights of the display is the salute to the military area, where folks can sit down and write a letter to the military overseas.  These notes are then packed with the Operation Evergreen trees in November.
