The Youngstown/Warren Region is situated midway between Cleveland, Ohio and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. While known for its legacy in steel making and automotive manufacturing, the area has diversified. Home to America Makes, the national accelerator for additive manufacturing and 3D printing, the Youngstown/Warren Metro area has become a center of additive manufacturing (AM). In addition to AM, other industries such as health care, professional services and education have also expanded here.
Long known for their strong work ethic, Youngstown residents know how to play as well. For example, the Canfield Fair, the largest county fair in the state of Ohio and the third-largest county fair in the United States, welcomes nearly 400,000 people yearly to enjoy activities including live concerts, livestock displays and international events. You’ll also find parks, museums, theatres, cultural events and more here.
Youngstown is also home to Youngstown State University, a comprehensive urban research university offering programs from business to engineering to the creative arts.
