Lycoming County Fair Taking Place July 10 to 20

The annual Lycoming County Fair will take place from Wednesday, July 10, to Saturday, July 20, and there will be lots of great fun and excitement.

Rocky Reed, president of Lycoming County Fair, is very excited and pleased about this edition of the fair, which will be held at the Lycoming County Fairgrounds in Hughesville.

He was asked about what is new and exciting about this year’s fair, and his response is sure to spark your anticipation.

“One of the big new things this year is adding a Rodeo to the grandstand lineup. We will be having bull riders, barrel races, mutton busting, and bull hockey on Friday evening starting at 6:30 p.m.,” Reed told Webb Weekly. “We’ve had the chance to work with this great company, Bull Ride Mania. The rodeo clown we have coming, “Buckshot,” is just a great entertainer. It should be a really enjoyable event. Tickets are only $10 for this show. We’d like to thank Parratt-Wolff, Mark’s Outfitters, Journey Bank, and Jody Peterman for sponsoring the Rode; we also have been very excited to tell people we’ve paired up with the Hughesville High School Drama Club to bring short performances nightly to the fair. These shows will be back on Amelia Earhart Funway. They each last about 10 minutes, there are a few different shows, and they are free to watch. There will be a finalized schedule posted on our Facebook page, so keep an eye out for that.”

Reed was asked what he was most excited to see at this year’s fair, and he stated, “Well, the people, of course. The fair board works all year round to put on this event. It’s many late nights and stressful days to get everything together, but we love to see the people of this community come and enjoy the fair. Seeing a family or a group of friends laughing and sharing memories at the Lycoming County Fair is really what it’s about.”

Reed is very pleased about the affordability of attending this year’s fair. “We were pleased to be able to keep general admission at just $4 again this year. Kids 12 and under are free, thanks to our sponsor, EQT, because every kid deserves to see the fair. We do our best to keep the fair affordable for families,” stated Reed.

He continued, “On Wednesday, July 17th, those 65 and over with a valid ID get into the fair for free thanks to our Sponsor, UPMC for Life Health Plan. On Thursday, July 28th, we have Military Appreciation Day, where all Military personnel with a valid ID get into the fair for free. This is thanks to our sponsor, Chesapeake Energy.”

We are so fortunate and thankful this year to all of our sponsors of the fair. They allow us to make upgrades and improvements at the fair as well as help us to keep costs lower for attendees, we really couldn’t do it without them. We are deeply grateful to all of them, with a special thanks to UPMC who is a major sponsor of the Lycoming County Fair. Your support means the world to us and our community.
