Cumberland County Fair

The Cumberland County Fair will return to the Crown Complex from September 3-12, 2021! We are excited to welcome everyone back to the wonder of agriculture with live stock, entertainment and a beer garden. With so much in store we cannot wait to get the fun started. 

The Cumberland County Fair seeks to provide an opportunity to showcase and preserve the history and legacy of the agricultural communities in Cumberland County; to celebrate the diversity of local arts and crafts; to promote a safe setting for fun, healthy family entertainment featuring music, and animals; and to encourage an environment of friendly competition for all ages.
