2020 Big Knob Fair
It is with sadness that Big Knob Grange announces the cancellation of the 2020 Fair which was to be held September 1st through the 5th.
The Fair Committee reviewed many options and after much discussion of the issues facing them, voted unanimously to recommend cancellation of the fair due to the many questions concerning the area’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and how that would affect attendance, as well as our need to ensure each patron’s well-being.
Big Knob Grange Fair has been a “free fair” for all of its 77 years of existence. We take pride in our dinners, entertainment, exhibits and other activities. Not since 1950 when the PA Turnpike Commission took our property on Glen Eden Road to extend the Turnpike to Ohio, has the Grange missed conducting the annual fair for the community,
We pledge to our many vendors, exhibitors, sponsors, and volunteers that work will begin immediately to plan for the 2021 fair, scheduled for August 31st through September 4th.
We ask your understanding of our decision to cancel, and hope that you’ll put next year’s fair on your calendar now.
Bill Steel, President
Big Knob Grange
