If you are looking for something fun for the whole family today, this is the place to be! The Mesopotamia Volunteer Fire Department has been hosting the 40th annual Ox Roast the last two days and today, Sunday, July 7, is the final day to get your tasty potion! The Ox Roast is the fire department’s main fundraiser and relies on the proceeds generated to purchase essential equipment and gear for the department. There is no admission charge to the ox roast.
The event is located at the intersections of State Route 87 and State Route 534, one hour east of Cleveland.
Historic Mesopotamia is one of the “hidden jewels” in Trumbull County. Thousands of people will enjoy the “famous slow roasted barbeque sandwich.” Our sandwiches are roasted on a spit over an open fire for eight hours and sliced for a fantastic flavor that makes it worth the trip to Amish country. Shop the huge flea market with over 160 vendors and enjoy live entertainment offered daily.
Outback Ray, 2 Men and a Campfire, Rock ‘N’ Country Cloggers, Bagpiper, and many others are scheduled to perform on stage surrounded by food, fun, a church pie auction, and country memories.
Middlefield Original Cheese House, Amish Home Crafts & Bakery, End of The Commons General Store, Ridgeview Farm Market, and many other unique shops are either all within a short driving distance from Mesopotamia or located right in town.
