The 66th annual Middletown Grange Fair starts this Wednesday August 13th at 10am and runs through Sunday August 17th at 576 Penns Park Road in Wrightstown. The fair, which started in 1948 as a corn growing competition for farmers, is a very popular, family-friendly event that celebrates Bucks County’s rich history in agriculture. There will be live entertainment, amusement park rides, dare devil stunts, animal judging, and the ever popular pig and dog races just to name a few of the fun activities.
The fair kicks off on Wednesday morning with the crowning of the new Queen of the Grange Fair, there will be an antique tractor parade on Friday evening, and the chicken barbecue dinner will be offered on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening. You’ll be sure to find something for everyone and a little something different each day at the Grange Fair.
