Bloomsburg Fair comes to town

It’s that time of year again. Backed-up traffic, long lines at every ATM in town, and the crisp autumn breeze herald in Bloomsburg’s 168th annual attraction- the Bloomsburg Fair.

According to the fair’s website, the nine-day event brings out over 500 vendors. These vendors range from the beloved eateries selling every imaginable item deep fried to agricultural equipment.

Kyla Parks a Bio-Medical Science major was asked what she was looking forward to most at the fair. She said, “I’m looking forward to the fair’s apple dumplings.”

Meanwhile, Arary Abriu a business administration major shared she is excited for, “the funnel cakes and the dance performances.”

There are also several vendors that are new to the fair. This includes Tasty Bubbles which offers bubble, milk, and yogurt tea. East Coast Chocolate is also new to the scene with its selection of fudge, luxury chocolates, and even moonshine truffle bars. The classic Auntie Anne’s pretzel shop can also be found among the many rows of the fairgrounds.

On top of its large selection of food, the fair also provides live music for its thousands of guests. The free show stage delivers exactly what its name states, free musical performances. This year’s lineup includes Sapphire, The New Individuals, and both a fiddle and banjo contest.

“It’s incredible to be able to see such quality performers right here in Bloomsburg,” said, Senior Allie Diehl.

The Weis Markets Grandstand will be hosting several music performances including Christian rock artist Zach Williams, who performed on September 24th and 25th. 

“Watching Zach Williams at the Bloomsburg Fair was an amazing experience. Although rainy, he put on a powerful performance that will be remembered,” said junior Ian Comly.
