Featured Entertainment

Cuyahoga County Fair Demolition Derby
This is one event where it kind of goes without saying that you shouldn't try this at home (unless you really don't like your home). Fire crews will be on hand, along with a grandstand packed with cheering fans, as The World's Largest Demo Derby returns to the Fair. If you thought Jack Nicholson knew something about road rage, you ain't seen nothin' yet! So come on out, and watch resale values plummet as an odd lot of maladjusted individuals crash tons of metal into eachother...
The Cuyahoga County Fair will be holding its fireworks spectacular on Tuesday, August 9th just after dusk, so bring the kids out to watch the show.

Wade Henry
Wade Henry hails from a long line of freedom-fighting Irish settlers who homesteaded in Manitoba in the 1700's and 1800's. It was in this Canadian West that Wade started training for his life as a performing artist. Wade's inclination towards danger became apparent when, as a toddler, he was found riding bareback on his grandmother's german shephard.
The Chardon Polka Band is known for being innovative and extremely adaptive with the ability to please almost any audience; whether it be 20-somethings at a college hang-out or the patrons of a local senior center. In their nine years together, the band has made a name for itself by adding a colorful twist to the traditional genre of the polka.

Chainsaw Woodcarvers Rick & Sue Cox
Michelangelo is purported to have said, "Every block of stone has a statue inside it." And so what of tree stumps? Most people look at them and see, well, tree stumps. Others, such as husband and wife Rick and Sue Cox, see eagles, squirrels and other woodland creatures... all just a few calculated strokes of a chainsaw away.
