Mission Statement

The Cuyahoga County Agricultural Society wants to thank all who attended the 119th Annual Cuyahoga County Fair. As is the custom, we finished things off with a bang in the World's Largest Demolition Derby. We'd like to congratulate Demo Derby champion R.J. Saponari (pictured top left), runner up Gary Farman (top right), Figure 8 Racing winner Adam Snyder (lower left), and Daredevil Dan (lower right). Daniel Barns, a U.S. Veteran from Euclid, Ohio, has been competing in this event for 19 years. His car was bought and prepared for the derby by "Wounded Heroes - the Price of Freedom." While the Fair celebrates our uniquely American way of life, Dan stands as a reminder to us all of the sacrifices so many men and women make, humbly and all too often thanklessly, to sustain that culture of freedom. With that, we salute you, Daniel Barns, just as we salute all those whose attendance helps keep the Ferris Wheel spinning. Your support is all that enables us to sustain this event and the grounds it occupies, so that we might hand them down as a legacy to future generations, just as those before us have done for well over a century now. Our mission is to continue to “bring the best of everything” for all ages in a safe, fun, festive atmosphere while emphasizing education in agriculture. We also thank you for your attendance at the many other events held throughout the year at the fairgrounds, with our goal being event diversity that all walks of life can enjoy.
