Bloomsburg Fair roars back after 2012 flooding shutdown

BLOOMSBURG — The 157th annual Bloomsburg Fair was canceled for the first time last year because of flooding but organizers said the tradition is returning.

The 200-acre fairgrounds will greet fairgoers this fall with repaired and rebuilt infrastructure.

The cost of daily admission is increasing from $5 to $8 for the eight-day event that runs Sept. 22-29.

An increase in vendor fees is also being imposed to help recover some of the approximately $2.8 million the fair lost last year from damage and lost revenue.

The fairgrounds had been hit by extensive flooding of the Susquehanna River when remnants from Tropical Storm Lee brought heavy rains to the area in September.
