Ephrata Fair

Welcome to the 2018 Ephrata Fair

The Ephrata Fair, “The largest street fair in Pennsylvania” has been a significant part of local history since 1919, showcasing our many agricultural events and exhibits, as well as all the fun on the Midway.

Agriculture is Pennsylvania’s number one industry, and at the Ephrata Fair, we’re proud to do our part in promoting and preserving our agricultural heritage. The agricultural farming exhibits, prize-winning animals, tractor events and other family fun contests known as Tent City is located in the Tom Grater Memorial Park.

2018 marks 100 years of the Ephrata Fair! We hope you’ll join us for this momentous occasion as we honor the past and celebrate the future through the many special activities, events, attractions, contests, and exhibits at this year’s Fair. Also, check out the memorabilia and merchandise available for purchase during Fair week—perfect keepsakes for remembering this milestone year!

*Due to the weather conditions on Tues. Sept. 25, we have had some Opening Night Celebration activity changes. Please see our Opening Night page for more details!*

All Chairs that were pre-positioned for the parade must be removed promptly.  Any left at the end of the week will be discarded.
