Summary of Cuyahoga County Fair, Latino Nights 2014

The number of Latinos coming to the Cuyahoga County Fair in Berea, Ohio continues to grow. For the first time there are two Latino Days, August 5 and August 7, 2014, where Latino cultures will be shared with all of Northeast Ohio.


The original fair in 1893 was called the West Cuyahoga County Fair, since there were so many other smaller fairs in the area. In 1895, advertising promised fairgoers an exhibition that would “bring together the best of everything.” That slogan has been the guiding motto every year since that time.

The first fairgoers went to the Cuyahoga County Fair to socialize, see new farm machinery, and display their animals.  Local businesses set up booths and children played baseball games.

Today, fairgoers come for the great diversity of attractions and delicious treats. They come to eat apple dumplings, elephant ears, and funnel cakes; to see pigs, rabbits, goats and horses; to get spun, fair rides, and fireworks.

This year The Fair is adding two days to welcome Latinos to the fair.  The first Latino day will be Tuesday, August 5. It will feature performances by cultural dancers, mariachi, Salsa Contest, and free salsa lessons.

The second day, Thursday, August 7, will feature musical performances by local Latino artists such as:  Justo Saborit, Grupo Son Gitano, Papo Ruiz y Su Merengüe, and bachata super star Domenic Marte (The Voice). Dance to the rhythms of the beat and see the local talent like Guitonsky, Catt, Mika Nova, and Poly Del Mambo.

New entertainment and attractions at the Cuyahoga County Fair have changed with the times. Fair organizers expect more than 180,000 people will come though the arch during 2014.

For more information about Latino nights, contact Richard Romero, coordinator, at 440-213-7329. On the Internet: www.cuyfair.com
