Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of Directors for the Elizabethtown Fair is officially announcing the cancellation of the 2020 Elizabethtown Fair, which was scheduled for August 24-29, 2020.
It is with great sadness that we make this announcement. Governor Wolf announced Thursday that the “Green” phase of reopening would limit gatherings, including fairs, to 250 people and would also include additional requirements and restrictions that would be impossible to enforce. This has forced us to make the difficult decision to cancel. In addition, we have a sincere concern for the safety of our volunteers, exhibitors, concessionaires, sponsors, attendees and the entire community.
We want to thank everyone for their understanding and loyal commitment to the Elizabethtown Fair during these unprecedented times. Please remember to support our local first responders, businesses and non-profit organizations, as you are able, during this difficult time. We are incredibly thankful for the support of our patrons, volunteers, exhibitors, and concessionaires. Please stay safe! We cannot wait to see you next year! Mark your calendars for August 23-28, 2021… We will be back!!!
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 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!
