Bazaar Season Round-Up

There’s no shortage of fun, food and good times when it’s Bazaar season in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

From the click-clack of the Big 6 wheel to the crunchy snap of a perfect potato pancake, summer weekends in NEPA are full of familiar sights and sounds

All summer long, NEPA neighbors come together at the beer tent, play games of chance and line up for delicious food. The usual sights of the towns give way to string lights and a welcomed debris of discarded Instant Bingo tickets. Adults happily yell to each other over the sounds of Polka and the unrestrained laughter of children. It’s Bazaar season!

NEPA Bazaars are a unique event

Regardless of location or cause, the Bazaar ultimately serves as a celebration of the community. Whether they raise funds for a church or a Volunteer Fire Department, the Bazaar brings NEPA together through food, music and fun.

Start planning your weekends now, because we’ve rounded up quite a few great Bazaars.
