Jubilee Day ™, in Mechanicsburg, PA, is the largest one-day street fair in the eastern United States! The fair originated in 1923 as an agricultural and merchants ‘thank you’ for the support of the community. Currently, the fair is attended by approximately 60,000 people who roam main street in Mechanicsburg during the festival hours (mid-morning until 9pm)
Jubilee Day ™ is held on the 3rd Thursday in June.
A main stage is constructed at the square where live music can be heard almost all day. Plenty of food, arts, and craft vendors line the streets; and most businesses have specials of their own inside the stores.
The Mechanicsburg Chamber of Commerce, which was established in 1927 as an organization to run Jubilee Day ™ and to provide resources and information year round, is the contact for this event. They can be reached at: (717) 796-0811.
Note: Parking can be very difficult. Expect to park some distance away and walk to the event.
