Come on out for a great time at the Huntingdon Fair! This year’s event runs from Sunday, August 6 through the 12th. For over one hundred and forty years the Huntingdon County Fair has been a tradition, continuing to grow each year. The Fair is known as the premier agricultural exposition in Pennsylvania–Second only to the State Farm Show. Many volunteers, parents and friends of 4-H and FFA youth members–work hard to assure clean, safe and educational exhibits.

The Fruits of the harvest–vegetables, hays, grains, nuts and honey, as well as peaches, apples and melons are exhibited for the best of show or champion rosettes.
