Canfield Fair App

App created for Canfield Fair

The Canfield Fair, founded in 1846, is Ohio’s largest county fair — second in size only to the Ohio State Fair in Columbus. A long-time end-of-summer tradition for residents of northeastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania, the Fair offers six days of Family, Friends, Fun and Food. Annual attendance at the Fair averages 350,000.

The Fair was a late convert to non-traditional media, but starting in 2006 under the guidance of Farris Marketing, they were brought into the modern era with a dynamic website, YouTube videos, a strong presence in social media, a mobile app and sponsorship opportunities.

This Project

Over the past few years, The Canfield Fair has embraced modern technology in a big way. But our most dramatic innovation yet has got to be our dedicated Canfield Fair app for iPhone and Android smart phones.

With this app, users are able to:

  • check the daily schedule of events
  • view a map of the Fairgrounds, so you can easily find restrooms, Fair buildings and other attractions
  • save your location in the Fair’s parking lots so you can find your way back easily
