Small Town, Large Community
The Elizabethtown Fair is one of 109 Pennsylvania State Fairs.
We offer animal, agricultural, competitive and commercial exhibits. We have a free petting zoo, free nightly entertainment, contests for all ages, rides and lots of great food!
Each August the Elizabethtown Fair provides an opportunity for the showcasing of agriculture in Lancaster County and surrounding counties. Many local civic organizations and church groups use the Fair as their principal fundraiser for the year. It is also an opportunity for local businesses and organizations to promote themselves.
Notice to Sale of Champion Buyers
With the ever changing challenges facing our small business, the meat processing industry is experiencing a shortage of labor as well. We have checked with several processors in our region and none of them have the ability to commit to openings in their schedule for potential fair animals that are ‘keep’ for slaughter. If you select ‘keep’ for your purchase year, you will need to make arrangements for the animal you purchase.
