Carlisle Summerfair

June 28 to July 7, 2024

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 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. 

While you’re visiting for Summerfair, plan a Weekend Easy getaway. There's plenty to do to keep you busy. From delicious food and delightful beverages to charming downtowns and off-the-beaten-path hiking destinations, Cumberland Valley has something for everyone.
