People from all walks of life will visit Pennsylvania state fairs this summer and fall, enjoying the entertainment, delicious food, thrilling rides, agricultural exhibits, animals, educational opportunities, motor sports, to participate in the friendly competitions, and just to take in some of the family fun and excitement.

One of Northeast Pennsylvania’s biggest and most affordable annual family events, the Northeast Fair, a Pennsylvania State Agricultural Fair, will open on Tuesday, June 21 and continue through Sunday, June 26, at the 42 acre fair grounds located off Route 315 in Pittston Township.

The Northeast Fair offers more than 1,500 contests with thousands of dollars in prize money to be awarded, allowing plenty of opportunity for Pennsylvania residents to enter their favorite contests and show off their talents.

Contest categories in the 2011 Contest Guide include special baking contests, floral exhibits & horticulture, needlecraft, arts, photography, crafts, wine & beer making, home produced foods, vegetables & tomatoes, 4-H, rabbits, evergreen trees, grain & hay, fruits & nuts, group exhibits, antique farm equipment, fair queen contest (limited to Luzerne and Lackawanna County residents), apiary & maple products, home grown music, special categories limited to youth under 19 years of age, beautiful baby contest.

First place blue ribbon winners of several contests will represent the Northeast Fair at the 2012 Pennsylvania Farm Show, competing against the first place winners of other Pennsylvania Fairs for the title and cash prizes of Pennsylvania’s best. The Northeast Fair Contest Guide includes simple instructions of how to register for a contest, how to exhibit, and how to claim awards.
