Cumberland County Fair

As a response to ongoing national public health concerns,  the Cumberland County Fair will not be held this year. The 2020 Cumberland County Fair was scheduled to take place September 4 through September 13 at the Crown Complex. Previously, the decision was made not to proceed with any indoor exhibits or agricultural displays and in the best interest of the community’s safety; the carnival portion is now canceled as well.

The health and wellness of our patrons and staff is always our number one concern and we hope that everyone remains safe during the pandemic as the Cumberland County Fair plans to return Labor Day Weekend 2021.

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, motorsports and animals; and to encourage an environment of friendly competition for all ages.
