Your Super Fair

When it comes to the best summer fun in Lancaster County, look no further than the Super Fair!

 

July 30 - Aug 8, 2020

 

Thank you to all of our wonderful sponsors for making your Lancaster County Super Fair a smash hit.

 

Super Fair returns to 10 days!

We’re excited for this year’s Super Fair which marks the Ag Society’s 149th year and the 18th year at Lancaster Event Center fairgrounds!

10 Days of Fun. Your Ag Society board really appreciates everyone’s input as we tried some different approaches last year to make the 5,000+ entries from 700+ 4-H & FFA youth the stars of our fair. This year, we are going back to clearly inviting the public out for the 10-day Super Fair that they have come to love, but we are trying a new “picture icon” schedule. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, we hope to better communicate to the public that if they want to see the 4-H/FFA exhibits —including 4-H/FFA/Open static exhibits and the largest selection of animals during the fair — to visit the first four days. And if the public wants to enjoy the carnival, free attractions and fair food outside on the fairgrounds, they have a full 10 days, which we hope will spread out the crowds at the carnival.

Open Livestock Shows. We are happy to announce that after hearing many of you really want to have Open Livestock shows, along with the 4-H/FFA shows, that we have several new Open Livestock Superintendents who have stepped up to organize these shows. The Ag Society will support as many of these Open Livestock shows as space allows to use the pavilions already setup from the 4-H/FFA portion of the fair, and will help pay for judges and ribbons.

Only available the FIRST 4 Days. As worked well last year, there are some activities which will only be available the first four days, including:

• 4-H/FFA and Open static exhibits will be together in the Lincoln Room.

• Open Quilts & Photography will again be in the Lancaster Room (Business Center).

• Commercial Vendors and Family Fun Zone in the Multipurpose Arena.

• The Pepsi Free Music & Entertainment Series with extra food vendors.

The Next 6 Days.  After the 4-H/FFA animal and static exhibits, and most vendors move out Sunday night, some non-fair shows will rent space to run concurrently with the second half of the fair which will continue centered on the north side of the fairgrounds with the carnival outside and Open Livestock shows in Pavilion 1. They’ll also be an All-You-Can-Ride wristband special, horse shows, llama games, Fun at the Farm, Equipment Rodeo, Fast Track Mud Drags, and “Bands and Brews”.

New Attraction.  The new national attraction rolling into town will be the Extreme Raptor Show with the world’s largest traveling collection of birds of prey. This educational and interactive show will be fun for all ages!

Thanks for all that everyone does to make the Super Fair so much fun each year—see you all soon!
