Great Allentown Fair to open Sept. 1

The Great Allentown Fairwill return this summer.

The fair will start 4 p.m. Sept. 1 and run through Labor Day, Sept. 6.

Beverly Gruber, president of the nonprofit Lehigh County Agricultural Society that owns and operates the fair and Allentown Fairgrounds, announced the unanimous decision of the organization’s executive committee to bring the community back together and produce a fair.

Consultations with many organizations led to the decision to go ahead with the 2021 Allentown Fair.

“The health and safety of our local and out-of-town fairgoers, exhibitors, vendors and entertainers has and will always be our number one priority.”

Two of the grandstand shows postponed in 2020 were rescheduled for this year’s fair.

The Toby Keith with special guests Matt Stell and Laine Hardy concert is Sept. 2 and the Carrie Underwood with special guest Dan Smalley concert is Sept. 3.

Tickets are available for both shows and can be purchased through Ticketmaster.com.

All tickets previously purchased will be honored at the 2021 concerts.

The J&J Demolition Derby is Sept. 6.

Tickets will go on sale 10 a.m. May 28 on Ticketmaster.com.

Additional information will be released as COVID-19 guidelines and regulations evolve throughout the summer.
