If you live near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, you’ve probably heard the Pennsylvania Farm Show is back! Running from Saturday 1/4 to Saturday 1/11 at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center, this event is one you don’t want to miss! Featuring over 10,000 exhibits, 6,000 animals, and tons of farm fresh food, this event is the largest indoor agriculture event in the United States.
I know what you’re probably thinking, what does a farm show have to do with you? Well, this show is actually very family-friendly and there’s so much to do that there’s literally something the whole family can enjoy!
While we were in Harrisburg this past weekend, we took the time to visit the Pennsylvania Farm Show and I am so glad we did!
Located in the same building as the Great American Outdoor Show (another event in February), the Pennsylvania Farm Complex is huge and offers over 1 million square feet of indoor space!
This event offers free admission for all ages and parking is just $15. Though you may have to park a little ways a way, the show does offer free shuttles to and from the parking lots.
During your visit, you can enjoy things as simple as watching piglets and their mom or something even more amazing, watching chicks hatch!
While we were at the show, the kids had a blast petting hundreds of farm animals and learning about (and seeing) all the different breeds of rabbits, chickens, and more.
While enjoying our visit, we had so much fun! We took advantage of many fun activities and games and even got a free sample of Turkeyhill’s Salted Caramel ice cream – it was delicious by the way!
Although we only spent a few hours at the show, you could easily spend all day at the Pennsylvania Farm Show, there’s so much to do there! If you have to work, don’t worry because the show runs from 8 am to 8 pm daily*.
While you’re there, don’t forget to check out the talk of the show – this amazing sculpture made completely out of butter! Also be sure to check the schedule of events for special celebrity appearances.
