To the West Lampeter Community Fair!

This “Senior Citizen” of Lancaster County Fairs was originally organized as an activity to display projects prepared by students attending what was called the West Lampeter Vocational School. During the first twenty-five years, it was held on the playground of the West Lampeter High School. In 1949, it was moved to the Lampeter Community grounds where it has grown into the major attraction that it is today.

The Fair Directors and Fair Department Committee Personnel comprise a unique blend of farmers, business persons and public spirited citizens who value community service above personal gain. Many of them take time from their regular occupations to spend long days working for or at the Fair.

The three-day event provides friendly competition among neighbors and a wholesome, educational atmosphere for all ages. Farmers and small gardeners can compare their produce at one central location. Children can learn to appreciate quality food products and farm animals. Our Youth Program is especially designed to encourage both boys and girls to exhibit in all categories of baking, canning, cooking, art, sewing, fruits, vegetables, plants and animals.

The Fair Book in your hand has increased from a simple 4-page leaflet used in 1924 to this year’s fair book. We are deeply appreciative of the many businesses and friends who support and participate in our community Fair.

Come to the Fair! Meet your neighbors; visit with our exhibitors; taste our food and enjoy our wholesome entertainment.
