This 3-day fair held on the grounds of St. Joseph Parish in Mantua, Ohio has something for everyone in your family. Besides the delicious food, there is live entertainment, an air-conditioned dining hall to cool off in, a variety of rides, games and contests. There are also tractor, truck and semi pulls. A variety of trade booths. There will also be a casino area with instant bingo on the grounds.
The famous Ox Roast has always been a part of the fair. 3,500 some lbs of high quality sirloin roast will be prepared in brick-lined pits that take days before the fair to heat up properly. The end result? A slow cooked beef sandwich or sirloin dinner platter that will melt in your mouth.
The Ox Roast Fair runs from Friday the 20th of July until Sunday the 22nd of July.
