PA State Grange at 2010 PA Farm Show

Come visit the PA State Grange booth at this year's 94th annual PA Farm Show, January 9-16, 2010 at the Farm Show Complex, N. Cameron & Maclay Streets, Harrisburg, PA. The show runs daily from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. except for the final Saturday, the 16th when it ends at 5:00 p.m.

The PA State Grange booth will be located in the Main Hall (just off Maclay Street) along the north wall. (If you walk in the Maclay Street entrance, go past the butter sculpture all the way to the first wall and turn right, we will be on your left along the wall). Stop by and say you saw our blog and receive a special "gift" from the Grange.

The PA Farm Show complex is the largest indoor complex of its kind in North America with about 25 acres indoors, nearly 6,000 animal entries, 10,000 competitive exhibits and 270 commercial exhibitors, offering more than $560,000 in prize money. This year, the PA Department of Agriculture is predicting that between 400,000 and 500,000 people will visit the show during the eight days! Admission is FREE (parking is $10/car)

The Grange is a family fraternal organization dedicated to the betterment of rural living through community service, education, legislation, and fellowship. It is the oldest agricultural and rural advocacy organization in the country.
