34th Annual Schnecksville Community Fair
The Schnecksville Community Fair began as a small carnival on the grounds of Community Fire Co. No. 1 in Schnecksville, PA in 1981. In 1983, the carnival officially became a “fair,” focusing on education and showcasing Lehigh County agriculture, and was named the Schnecksville Community Fair.
Over the years, the event has grown and matured, but the mission has remained constant – to be a first class agricultural fair. Typically beginning the Monday after Father’s Day, the fair has plenty of activities for attendees: carnival rides; competitive exhibits of animals, foods, plants, crafts, etc.; baking and cooking contests; a barnyard petting zoo; fire equipment displays; a children’s pedal tractor pull contest; concerts in the pavilion; quarter midget racing; and a variety of other entertainment. With an assortment of “fair foods” and vendors selling their wares, the fair has something for everyone in the family.
The Schnecksville Community Fair is a non-profit corporation, with all proceeds benefiting the Fire Company. The fairgrounds are located just seven miles north of Allentown, on Route 309.
