Carlisle Summerfair returns in 2024.
For over 40 years, Carlisle Summerfair has provided a community-wide celebration featuring various free, family-friendly events. Taking place at the end of June/beginning of July, this annual event includes activities such as open pool nights, concerts, a craft show, a fishing derby, sporting events, and more.
Kick off the event with a free ice cream social starting at 5:30 pm on Friday, June 28, on the Dickinson College campus, followed by opening ceremonies at 5:50 pm and and a free concert by local band Cheap Sneakers from 6 pm to 8 pm. Summerfair then continues with fun for everyone over the course of 10 days.
