Harvest Home Fair is BAAAAck for 159th Year
September 6th – 9th at Harvest Home Park in Cheviot Sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Cheviot-Westwood
Every September, the Harvest Home Fair hosts a full weekend of fun, drawing guests from all over the tri-state to experience a true “Fair.” Children and adults alike enjoy the legendary parade through Cheviot, fun carnival rides, trying their luck and skills at games, taking in the animals, horse shows, agriculture and horticulture; craft, art and trade exhibits, and of course all of that delicious Fair food! There’s something for everyone at the ‘Biggest Little Fair in Ohio.’
2018 is a milestone year for Harvest Home Fair’s host city as the City of Cheviot celebrates its bicentennial and is marking the occasion (and doorsteps everywhere) with the Cheviot Sheep Project! Much like Cincinnati’s ‘Big Pig Gig’ of years past, Cheviot residents are encouraged to purchase a sheep, creatively dress or decorate it and will ultimately be entered into a contest where Fair attendees choose their favorite.
You may find yourself asking ‘Why sheep?’ Well, the Cheviot Sheep is a breed of white-faced sheep found in the Cheviot Hills in southern Scotland. In the early 1800s, John Craig, an early immigrant from Scotland laid out a small village on the west side of Cincinnati and named it—you guessed it—Cheviot! Fair organizers even developed a trio of mascots specifically for the Cheviot bicentennial. Pictured at right are Sadie, Sally and Sam.
To keep with the Fair’s theme this year, Cheviot’s Bicentennial, the Art Show is awarding a special prize in the category Scenes of Cheviot and the Flower Show features ‘200 years of Cheviot History.’
The weekend’s entertainment includes headliner performances by 90 Proof Twang on Thursday, Marsha Brady on Friday, and FinTan and DV8 on Sunday.
