“A Family Tradition” — The Centre County Grange Encampment and Fair, better known as “The Grange Fair,” is Aug. 22 – 29, 2013. The Grange Fair is a city within a town, as campers “move into” the Grange Park in Centre Hall, PA to live for more than a week. Come for the concerts, the rides, the amazing food, the games, and the competitions. But you’ll come on back for the experience of being in one of the most uniquely friendly “hometowns” in America…at the Great Grange Fair!
