The Pennsylvania Farm Show is an annual agriculture show hosted at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex here in the City of Harrisburg. It is the largest indoor agriculture exposition featuring about 6,000 animals, 10,000 competitive exhibits and 300 commercial exhibits each year. The show provides the opportunity for people to see what Pennsylvania has to offer in the industry.
The Farm Show is usually held in the first or second week of January and lasts about 10 days. And as you will see from the photos, there is plenty to see and do. From petting farm animals to competitions to delicious food and famous milkshakes, there’s something for everyone!
In addition, this year, our very own Mayor Papenfuse participated in the “Fill a Glass with Hope” campaign hosted by the PA Dairymen’s Association by serving milkshakes. For every milkshake purchased, a dollar was donated to the cause.
