Presidents Welcome

Welcome to the 126 th McClure Bean Soup Festival and Fair!

September 10 th thru September 16 th

In September, once again our little town of McClure will come alive with the sights, sounds, lights, laughter, fellowship and homecomings as we celebrate the 126th year of “The McClure Bean Soup Festival and Fair.”

The Theme for all Pennsylvania State Fairs for 2017 is “Country Scenes… Blue Ribbon Dreams.” We would like to take this opportunity to invite you, your family, and your friends to visit our fair and take a stroll thru our exhibit hall to see our “Blue Ribbon Dreams.”

We would invite you to exhibit all your “Blue Ribbon Dreams” by participating in our “Open Show” entries. You can showcase your prize-winning canned goods, home grown fruits and vegetables, flowers, hay, woodcrafts, antiques and so much more.

The Pennsylvania State Association of County Fairs consists of 109 County Fairs across Pennsylvania that has as their focal point education and showcase agriculture, horticulture, and tourism. Every Fair in Pennsylvania is different, yet for everything that is unique with each fair, they all operate with the same purpose – to showcase the best that is made and grown in PA and educating their visitors about agriculture. Stop by our fair and see Pennsylvania’s agriculture at its best. Support your fairs! Pennsylvania’s #1 industry is agriculture.

As always, our fair would not continue to grow without the many hours that our “Valuable Volunteers” give to us every year! Our fair officers and committee members contribute many volunteer hours and many fundraiser events to continue the progress of our fair. You will find our volunteers in the exhibit hall, food stand, souvenir stand, cake wheel and many other areas of our fair! Another important part of our fair is our many sponsors. Year after year, we have individuals and businesses sponsor our many contests that we have during fair week. We, the Fair Officers and Committee Members extend a warm THANK YOU for your continued support and would like to welcome you to attend our fair.

Mark your calendars and join us for a week of showcasing your “Blue Ribbon Dreams” and Join with us as we celebrate 126 years at The McClure Bean Soup Festival and Fair.
