The 42nd Elizabethtown Fair has come and gone and planning for the 43rd has already begun!
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 helped make this year’s 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 supported our auctions. Thank you also to all our volunteers and those who attended - without you the Fair would not exist!
Thank you for helping the Elizabethtown Fair grow and improve!
