To the West
Lampeter Community Fair!
September 26,27,28, 2012
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.
