Officially known as the HARFORD AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY, nestled in the rolling Endless Mountains of Susquehanna County this fair is one of the few truly agricultural country fairs which exists today, a six-day fair , it provides opportunities for young and old alike to exhibit handcrafts, school projects, agricultural items, fruits, vegetables, baked goods, animals, photography and art work. There are over 200 commercial space renters who display their wares as well.
Highlights of the main arena events include three nights of tractor and truck pulls in addition to the popular annual events of the rodeo, the horse pulls, the woodsman’s contest, the demolition derby, and a featured country western show. At the north end of the main arena is the horse arena which features a variety of equestrian events throughout the week.
Daily demonstrations abound throughout the fair which include chain saw carving and stained glass work some of which is auctioned off to the public on Saturday afternoon. Throughout fair week thirteen different acts will perform in the Shade Pavilion providing constant entertainment in a comfortable seated area. Whatever tickles your taste buds can be found at the Harford Fair sink your teeth into a funnel cake, potato pancake, corn on the cob, or baked potato.
