In 2020, 103 of the 108 Fairs were cancelled due to the COVID Pandemic. The Elizabethtown Fair Board is working hard to plan for “A” Fair in 2021. “THE” Elizabethtown Fair of the past will not be possible in 2021 as COVID mandates continue. Please be assured that The Elizabethown Fair as you know it will return in the future!!
We will continue to offer animal, agricultural, competitive and commercial exhibits. We hope to 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 fund raiser for the year. It is also an opportunity for local businesses and organizations to promote themselves.
The Elizabethtown Fair Board and Committee would like to thank all those who help make the Fair a success. First of all, without our partners, the Elizabethtown Area School District and the Elizabethtown Brethren in Christ Church, the Elizabethtown Fair would not be possible at the present site. We would also like to thank all our exhibitors, vendors, sponsors and those who support our auctions. Thank you also to all our volunteers and those who attend - without you the Fair would not exist!
