Black, orange and white advertisement for the Ottawa Co Fair. The fair was August 5 thru 8 this year. This advertisement is in a scrapbook of the first Ottawa Co Fair which was 1959.
The Ottawa County Fair was begun in 1959 by Cliff Steketee and others who felt there was a need for ‘something to do’ during the summer. Property was leased on Ottawa Beach Road, the overgrowth was cleared from around the pre-existing track and buildings, and the first fair was held during the last week of July, 1959.
