Flat Rock Creek Fall Festival

501 Fairground Drive
Paulding, OH 45879

419-769-3011

Traditionally held during the third weekend in September, the Flat Rock Creek Fall Festival is a celebration of old time steam engines and vintage farm equipment. The air is crisp with the cool suggestion of fall, and filled with the smells of apple cider, kettle corn, corn on the cob, and smoke from hot, boiling steam engines. Hundreds of people fill the Paulding County Fairgrounds and enjoy browsing hundreds of craftspeople and flea market stands. Favorites each year include the vendor of old and antique tools, holiday handicrafts from area craftsman, the icy cold goodness of freshly churned ice cream and great food provided by local non-profit agencies.

The event features antique tractor pull competitions as well as champion draft horse teams vying for the top pulling honors. Oldies favorites, Spike and the Bulldogs draw an audience of 1,000s as they pull up their chairs and lay out their blankets under the stars. Old-time fiddlers, banjos and other musical offerings fill the air with sweet sounds. Folks are hard-pressed to identify all the wonderful smells, tastes and sounds that are overflowing their senses. The Antique and Classic Truck Show is held on the final day of the festival across the street from the Fairgrounds at the John Paulding Historical Museum.
