NEW IN 2014: The Darke County Fair Safety committee announced a major safety improvement for Gate #1 concerning pedestrians crossing Sweitzer Street. This was a collaborative effort between the Darke County Sheriffs Office, Darke County Fair Safety Committee, ODOT and The City of Greenville in order to make the Fair as safe as possible. Beginning the Thursday before the annual Fair begins, a new safety zone will be erected and will remain in place until the Monday after the annual Fair concludes.  Here are the list of the changes:

1. A temporary crosswalk will be installed across Sweitzer Street/State Route 49 from the walking lane of Gate #1 to the East side of Sweitzer Street.
