York Expo Center / York Fair

  • Details

    Since 1765, the traditions of fairs in the New World began with the York Fair, America's first fair, held in the historic old Town of York in 1765, eleven years before the nation was founded. A charter to hold that fair was granted to the people of York by Thomas Penn, son of William Penn in recognition of "the flourishing state to which the town hath arrived through their industry." Those early gatherings were reported to have been "the liveliest days of the whole year." Featuring livestock and horticulture competitions, rides, games, exhibits, vendors, live entertainment & so much more.
