Lackawanna County Heritage Fair Will Return in 2020 and 2021

heritage fairOrganizers have announced that the Lackawanna County Heritage Fair will be back at Montage Mountain Resort for 2020 and that Montage Mountain Resort will also host the 2021 fair.  

The Fair Board is grateful to Montage for the outstanding logistical support that it provided this year for the inaugural fair, as well as for opening its water park and chair lift to patrons of the fair as part of the price of fair admission.  Organizers intend to keep the admission price at or near $10 per person for the 2020 fair, and to once again include the water park and chair lift in the price of admission together with the carnival rides and entertainment.

It appears that 2020 is shaping up to be a great summer for world-class entertainment Northeastern Pennsylvania, and the Heritage Fair will be a part of it, with cross-promotion of the 2020 Fair in May, the International League 2020 AAA All Star Game at PNC Field in July, and the 2020 Air Show at the WB/S International Airport in August.  This convergence of entertainment events is unique in the country – it’s only available here in NEPA.  

Further details of the cross-promotion will be announced in the coming months.  It is hoped that a special price can be offered to patrons who wish to attend all three of these unique and family-friendly entertainment events, and in that way give added value to patrons by helping them to stretch their family entertainment dollars.  

The organizers are putting out a call for volunteers to serve on committees which will help the Fair Board with the planning of the 2020 Fair.  The board is interested in developing the more traditional themes of county fairs, such as competitions, agriculture, horticulture, and home economics, and they are looking for people with business management backgrounds who can help with business modeling and best practices.
