The origin of the Fairgrounds starts with a farm!

While the Montgomery County Fairgrounds continues to recognize the contributions of agriculture and provide a lasting green space for the enjoyment of all residents of the County and the City of Dayton, one of the fairgrounds’ neighbors has its roots in farming as well.

The University of Dayton started 160 years ago with the purchase of a farm and now, sitting along Stewart Street, from the Miami River to historic Woodland Cemetery, UD has become one of the leading universities and Catholic institutions in the United States.

The Montgomery County Fairgrounds is proud to be neighbors to such a fine leader in higher education.


The Montgomery County Fair is a great tradition and event that brings together our county’s communities and especially families. We are contacting you to see if your business or organization would like to make an investment in this event to show your support and to reach potential customers.

There are many sponsorship opportunities from having your own “Day at the Fair” to sponsoring a building or show to sponsoring golf carts or class trophies and plaques. All come with great recognition and advertising opportunities. See the attached sponsorship form. We would like to thank you in advance for your support and investment in the Fair. We are very grateful to the many businesses and organizations that sponsor the Fair so generously.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Lori at the Fairgrounds office at 937-224-1619 or email.
