Annual Bloomsburg Fair - HUGE!
The Bloomsburg Fair of Central PA is HUGE!

Every last week of Sept, the area puts on a terrific old fashioned American - style "county fair" that is the envy of every other fair in the region....

Everything you can think of in a fair is here - including great food!

This is an EASY flight to N13, Bloomsburg Airport and 10 minute walk to the fair. Easy!

Put this one on your calendar for every late Sept! Fun for the day or an over-nighter!

Mike Marra, Keystone Flight of Central PA

What is a State Fair?

A state fair is an annual competitive and recreational gathering of a U.S. state's population, usually held in late summer or early fall. It is a larger version of a county fair, often including only exhibits or competitors that have won in their categories at the more-local county fairs.

State fairs began in the nineteenth century for the purpose of promoting state agriculture, through competitive exhibitions of livestock and display of farm products. As the U.S. evolved from a predominantly agrarian to an industrial society in the twentieth century, modern state fairs have expanded to include carnival amusement rides and games, display of industrial products, automobile racing, and entertainment such as musical concerts. Large fairs can admit more than a million visitors over the course of a week or two. The first U.S. state fair was that of New York, held in 1841 in Syracuse, and has been held annually to the present year.

Events similar to state fairs are also held annually in each state capital in Australia, known as Royal Shows. Australian Royal shows are organized by state agricultural and horticultural societies, and are described further in the agricultural show article. The Bloomsburg State Fair is an excellent example of "Americana" at its finest.
