At a time when county fairs are decreasing and becoming less important, the Bloomsburg Fair continues to draw surprisingly large crowds and provides vitality to its community and the state. The Bloomsburg Fair of today includes elements of a carnival, local festival, amusement park, museum, art show, animal show, parade, marketplace, and bazaar. The event includes rides, animals, foods, various exhibits, entertainment, historic displays, and numerous activities (of which there are too many to list). The local Bloomsburg Fair celebration is much different than it was 157 years ago. What started as a modest display in a field on the outskirts of Bloomsburg has grown into a multi-million dollar industry that attracts hundreds of thousands of people every year.
