2017 Pennsylvania Farm Show Set To Run January 7-14 In Harrisburg

The most often question asked this time of year?  When’s the Pennsylvania Farm Show?  This year’s Show will run from January 7 to 14 at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex off Cameron Street in Harrisburg.
Every year up to 225,000 people visit the Farm Show to see 6,000 live farm animals, 10,000 competitive food, produce, and animal exhibits as well as 300 commercial exhibits all related to Pennsylvania agriculture.
Visitors can learn about farm conservation and explore educational displays from the departments of Agriculture, Conservation and Natural Resources and Environmental Protection, the Game and Fish and Boat Commissions and many others.
The popular butter sculpture that turns 1,000+ pounds of butter into a 3D scene celebrating Pennsylvania agriculture is usually unveiled a few days before the Show opens.  And if past practice holds, the butter will be turned into renewable fuel after the Show ends.
And, of course, the famous milk shakes, sticky buns, stuffed mushrooms and other goodies showing of agricultural products produced here in the Commonwealth.
The Pennsylvania Farm Show is the nation’s largest indoor agricultural event that has an estimated economic impact of $95 million to the Southcentral Pennsylvania economy, supporting more than 18,000 jobs over the course of the week-long event.
