UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 social gathering restrictions imposed by the state of Pennsylvania, the Board of Directors of the Big Butler Fair announce with heavy hearts the cancellation of the 165th Big Butler Fair.  Not since the Civil War has the Fair been cancelled.  We hold in highest regard our exhibitors, volunteers, fairground staff, attendees, and the community at large and wish for all good health and well being.

As we cancel the 2020 Big Butler Fair, we also begin planning the 2021 Big Butler Fair scheduled for July 2-July 10.  We truly look forward to seeing our “Fair Family” again next year and appreciate your understanding during this time.

Thanks for taking the time to learn more about the volunteers who work year-round to make the Big Butler Fair memorable and fun for families.

With our 165+ years of rich history, our volunteers who strive to make the Big Butler Fair possible enjoy seeing the smiling faces of fairgoers each summer and watching the event grow each year. They not only view the Fair as an event, but as a piece of American history!

The Big Butler Fair is a culmination of the efforts of so many caring individuals, and it takes a lot of work and dedication. We are always looking for volunteers—from ticketing assistance to concessions management—to keep this outstanding tradition of the Fair thriving in our community.

If you are interested in volunteering to help continue the traditions of the Big Butler Fair, please call us at 724-865-2400.

We’ll see you at the Fair!
