Wednesday & Friday: 9AM - 4PM
Hardin County is located directly in the line of totality and will have one of the longest viewing experiences in the state.
A total solar eclipse is a rare and spectacular event. On average, one happens somewhere on the Earth only once every 1.5 years. Only 21 total solar eclipses have crossed the lower 48 states in the entire existence of the United States.
The last total solar eclipse visible in Ohio was in 1806. The next total solar eclipse in Ohio will be in the year 2444.
The Hardin County Commissioners Office has requested that the grounds be utilized as a public viewing location. Anyone and everyone will be invited to the fairgrounds to view this spectacular occurrence of nature!
Camped at the fair before? Camping for the eclipse does not have any bearing on your fair campsite. Your campsite will remain intact for the Hardin County Fair. All bookings must be made through the online form.
The 2024 eclipse is an incredible opportunity for Hardin County, and there are several hardworking individuals across the county. The Hardin County Chamber and Business Alliance serves as the hub for all eclipse information.
