It's no wonder the Clearfield Fair is enjoying over 150 year tradition, especially since it one of the largest in the state, Grange exhibits, animals, rides, national acts, food, thrills and more.

For many years the Clearfield County Fair has been the only place in central Pennsylvania to see great entertainers perform in front of the grandstand from Bob Hope to Garth Brooks and continues to bring big name entertainers.

The county fair actually began in 1852. It all began as an agriculture and industrial fair. Through the years this Pennsylvania Fair saw its ups and downs. Due to the crash of the stock market and economic hardships the fair was suspended in 1935. Then again in 1944 and 1945 the fair was again put on hold because of WWII and many of its and many of the residents going off to war.

A midway stage show, showing Wonders of the World You never really know from year to year what you're going to experience at the County Fair. From the midway exhibits to the Grange exhibits every family member is entertained and excited to see one event after another.

Everybody feels like a farmer as you stroll through the many agriculture exhibits and livestock. See homemade pies, cakes, home canning and the best looking vegetables Pennsylvania agriculture has to offer and you'll love seeing the blue ribbon winners. You'll also see quilts and handmade crafts and just watch your children's delight in seeing all the carefully raised farm animals compete to win their own prizes.

You'll find shows and exhibits that will make you laugh and make your skin crawl. Try your luck at the many games of skill and games of chance. There's always a winner and tons of prizes. Before you know it, you'll have the fever. Don't worry it happens to everybody. And lets not forget the thrill rides. Be prepared to scream, giggle and wanting more. You'll find rides for every age.

Come early and plan to stay late, because the Clearfield County Fair is known for its selection of the best in name acts. It's an outside concert that can only be experienced at a County Fair Grandstand. Before you know it, you're stomping your feet and waving your hands in the air. You might even get to see many of the acts just roaming though the fair grounds enjoying themselves as much as you are.

The Grandstand is always buzzing with activity from one show to another, with seating capacity for 5,000.

I can't imagine anybody not loving the Harness Racing. The clay based, all weather, half-mile track, is the scene of 4 days of Harness Racing that always starts Monday through Thursday, at 1:pm post time.

A tractor trailer painted like a cow, one of the stunt shows at Clearfield County Fair. Stunt show fans can see some great action on Saturday at noon, when the Imperial Stunt Drivers show their dare and devilry at the Grandstand. You can watch a Full Pull and Tractor Pull. Like I said, there is something for everybody.

Let's not forget the Fireman's Parade and Fireworks display at 6 p.m. at the Grandstand! And of course every year there is a Clearfield County Queen crowned on Sunday, the last day of the County Fair at 3:00 p.m.

Pretzels backed like a loaf of bread at Clearfield County Fair Last but not least by any means, we have to brag about the food. You better arrive hungry, you'll smell the wide variety of food cooking the moment you walk through the gate. You'll find every type of food you can imagine and much of the food you never imagined but you'll want to try it all.

There is just nothing like a Pennsylvania County Fair, and the Clearfield County Fair really lives up to its expectations.
