Three Day Mercersburg Fair is a Go - Plus Second Saturday Sidewalk Sales

The spirit of service in Mercersburg is strong, and the fair is a good example. Mercersburg Lions President Jason Cotton said, “the decision to move forward with the 45th annual fair was driven by a desire within the Lions organization to keep our traditions alive.”

The Mercersburg Lions have adapted plans for the 45th annual Mercersburg Lions Fair. An abbreviated event will be held August 13, 14, and 15 at the Mercersburg Lions Park. Although the fair schedule has been reduced in consideration of COVID-19, Entertainment will be offered on each of the three nights, and a modified menu of food will be available, but carnival rides and skill games cannot be offered. Big Bucks Bingo will thrill a maximum of 200 participants on the first night of the fair. Tables will be arranged to permit social distancing, and the PA sound system will be extended into the baseball outfield for the bingo event. Fireworks will be displayed just after dusk on Friday night, and a new event has been scheduled for Saturday, August 15: The Mercersburg Lions Classic Car Show. Car show registrations will be accepted the day of the event.

Members of the Lions serve the community in many ways, with a global focus on sight conservation. Community members looking for ways to serve their neighbors should visit a monthly members meeting of the Mercersburg Lions, held at 6:30 PM on the first Wednesday of every month at the Lions Park Pavilion on Park Street.

In addition to the three day fair, downtown merchants have also organized a 2nd Saturday Sidewalk Sales event, which takes place on the 2nd Saturday of the month. The next one takes place this weekend, Saturday, August 8th. Many downtown merchants will be offering specials, giveaways and other items; vendors will also be setup outside of certain businesses. We hope that you will visit and support our local businesses; there will be plenty of food, ice cream, antiques, and much more.
