Lucky for fun-loving people in and around the Pocono Mountain area, it’s almost time for the Greene Dreher Sterling Fair. This fair has been a highly anticipated event in the area since it was established in 1917, and you don’t want to miss it! Mark your calendar for August 23 through September 1, and head over to the GDS Fairgrounds for a great time.
Fun at the Fair
Whether you’re coming for the rides, the food, or the games, there’s something at the Greene Dreher Sterling Fair for you. If you’re looking for a laid-back evening, stroll the grounds and take in agricultural exhibits, crafts, and vendor wares. Or just park yourself on a bench with something deep-fried on a stick and do some people watching. If you’re a little more adventurous, head for the midway amusement rides for guaranteed thrills and take on some classic games to challenge your skills. Make sure to get a photo with fair mascot Connie the Cow.
