HARRISBURG – It’s the week a lot of Pennsylvanian’s have been waiting for – the PA Farm Show.

The 107th Pennsylvania Farm Show will be held Jan. 7 through 14, at the Farm Show Complex on Cameron Street in Harrisburg.

The one-million square foot complex will be packed with animals, food, competitions and exhibits.

The event draws scores of visitors to the capital of PA every year for a mid-winter celebration of Pennsylvania agriculture. It’s the largest indoor agriculture exposition in the nation, featuring nearly 4,000 animals, 12,000-plus competitive events and exhibits, plus 245 commercial exhibits and hundreds of educational and entertaining events.

The PA Farm Show showcases the diversity and quality of Pennsylvania’s agriculture industry, the innovative people who make it thrive now, and the faces of PA’s proud past and promising future.

The show offers visitors a peek into the industry that supports 593,000 Pennsylvania jobs and contributes $132.5 billion to Pennsylvania’s economy every year.

The 2023 show runs from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily from January 7 to 14; except Sunday, January 8, when it runs 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Saturday, January 14, when it opens at 8 a.m. and closes at 5 p.m.
