The Centre County Grange Encampment and Fair, better known as “The Grange Fair,” is August 18th - 26th, 2017. This year marks the 143rd anniversary of this unique fair. The Grange Fair is a city within a town, as campers “move into” Grange Park in Centre Hall, PA to live for more than a week. The fair is economical family entertainment, with one low admission fee and free entertainment including nationally-known performers. Enjoy a closer look at the vital role of agriculture, with thousands of exhibits, livestock competitions, and horse shows. Feel the rumble of horsepower from tractors and trucks, and the thrill of rides for all ages, while tempting scents of delicious festival food waft through the air.
There is something for everyone at Grange Fair! Highlights include:
• Over 300 Commercial Concessions
• Numerous food options to choose from (including gluten-free)
• Amusement Rides
• National, Regional and Local Entertainment
• Livestock Shows and Barns
• Horse Shows and Equine Facility
• Competition Track with Motor Sports
• Health & Wellness Opportunities

Come for a day or bring your RV and stay longer! Grange Fair offers 1,000 permanent tenting sites and 1,500 permanent RV sites. These sites are reserved and many have been in families for generations. If you do not have one of these reserved campsites, our Overflow RV Camping Area is available! No reservations are needed. Spaces are available on a first come, first served basis. The cost is $30.00 per night (check or cash only). These spaces are primitive (no water or electric hook-ups) and you may use your generator through the day until midnight. This is a great way to enjoy the fair for one or more days! The Overflow RV Camping Area opens Thursday, August 17th at 6 p.m. and will then be open daily for each day of the fair from 9 a.m. to sunset. You may pull your RV in or out during these times. For camping information, please contact Grange Fair Committee Member Gloria Reese at 814-571-5618.
