"The Kimberton Community Fair Board is pleased to announce that there will be a Fair this year. It may look a little different than other years, but we are continuing to plan with the community’s interests – and safety – in mind. We are continuing to monitor the mandatory requirements from local, county and state agencies, and will be implementing the necessary safety protocols to allow us to re-open our agricultural fair. Family, Farms, Food and Friends…it’s time to get back together again! The Fair will do everything it can to create a successful and safe fair for our community. We ask that all volunteers, exhibitors and patrons do their part in respecting our rules and requirements. It’s been a long time – now let’s go to the Fair!"

The Kimberton Fair has been in existence since 1929 and all proceeds benefit the Kimberton Fire Company, totally over $3.0 million over the past 90 years. This is one of the Fire Company's major sources of revenue and enables the volunteer firefighters to operate and maintain a state-of-the-art fire department that covers East Pikeland, West Pikeland, Charlestown, East Vincent, and West Vincent Townships with fire protection and other emergency response services.
Admission to the Fair is free with parking by donation, which directly benefits the volunteer Kimberton Fire Company. In fact, the members of the fire company donate their time each evening to do the parking collections.
