Ohio's Only County Fair Band Since 1938

The Great Geauga County Fair Band

The Great Geauga County Fair Band is Ohio's oldest and only all-volunteer band. Formed in l938, the band performs everyday at the fair in the Vernon Howard Band Pavilion at the south end of the fairgrounds. The Great Geauga County Fair Band also performs during the summer at select venues.

The band director is Greg Hillis, a member of the French horn section for ten years. Greg has music degrees including a Masters in Music from Kent State University and has taught band in public schools. The band is looking forward to a great year and a great fair.

Come hear the band practice Tuesday evenings, weather permitting, 7:30 p.m., at the Vernon Howard Band Pavilion on the fairgrounds. Bring a lawn chair, relax and enjoy the music. The pavilion is named in memory of Vernon Howard, an original band member. His wife, Marion, continues to play in the band.
