Summer PA Fair Guide

New Pennsylvania Fair Guide Offers Affordable Destinations for Families

More than 100 Fairs Combine Farms, Food and Fun

Harrisburg– Affordable, family friendly travel destinations are
featured in the 2012 Pennsylvania Fair Guide, now available in print or
online.

Offering information on the dates and locations of the more than 100
fairs held across Pennsylvania, the guide is available online at
www.agriculture.state.pa.us .

“Pennsylvania’s county and community fairs offer a distinctive
combination of farms, food and fun,” said Agriculture Secretary George
Greig. “Visit our fairs and discover why they have become a favorite
family tradition of more than six million Pennsylvanians.”

New this year is PA Preferred™, the official brand of agricultural
commodities grown or made in the state. The program’s logo, a gold
checkmark inside a blue keystone, makes it easy for consumers to
identify and buy agricultural products produced here by our farmers and
businesses. PA Preferred is sponsoring chocolate baking contests at each
fair. Contact your local fair for information about contest rules. For
more information about PA Preferred, visit www.PAPreferred.com

The guide also highlights 15 fairs that offer live harness racing as
part of one of the nation’s leading fair racing programs.

In addition to fairs, Pennsylvania is home to other educational and
affordable agricultural destinations, including farmers markets,
wineries and farm stay bed and breakfasts. The Pennsylvania Tourism
Office highlights these agritourism destinations online at
