This year was a very special one for Ephrata Fair’s Tent City, as they celebrated their 50th anniversary. The Pennsylvania House of Representatives prepared and presented a citation to the Tent City Board recognizing this milestone. The proclamation is as follows:
“Whereas, held from September 22 to 26, 2015, the Ephrata Fair will offer entertainment, attractions, games and food to its many attendees. During this year’s fair, Tent City, the agricultural aspect of the fair, will celebrate fifty years of being located at Grater Memorial Park. To its great credit, it provides the space for the proper exhibition and care of the numerous animal participants in the fair, and food vendors are also at that location to serve fair attendees and showcase their high-quality items. In addition, Tent City will offer a petting zoo and entertainment events, which include a tractor pull, a tug-of-war competition and a turkey-calling contest. Throughout their laudable history, the Ephrata Fair and Tent City have truly made an impact in the lives of fairgoers through their many laudable programs, educational events and entertainment, and they have become an integral part of their community and this Commonwealth.”
