Grange Fair Information

The Grange Fair is an annual fair and camping event held in Centre Hall in Centre CountyPennsylvania each year since 1874. The fair is typically held in the last full week of August.[1]

It consists of thousands of people camping at the fairgrounds in large, green, rented tents with asphalt floors. Thousands more stay in their own recreational vehicles, parked on the grounds. In addition to those staying on the fair grounds, daily visitors come for rides, food, bingo, animal shows, livestock contests and concerts.

Families stay in the same tent each year and tent locations are often passed down through generations. The wait for a tent reservation is said to be years long.[2]

On the last day of 140th Grange Fair, it was announced that the 2015 Grange Fair will be moving a week earlier and adding 1 day, with the fair going from 7 days to 9 days.[3] Historically those renting tents would move in on Tuesday with those renting spaces with campers move in starting as early as the Sunday before the fair opened to those not camping on the grounds on that Thursday for season ticket holders.
