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.
