About the Fair
Since 1959, The Lebanon Lions Club has operated the Lebanon Country Fair and it has been the main event in Lebanon ever since. The fair takes place the weekend of the second Sunday in August of every year. The Lebanon Country Fair started on the Lebanon green and moved to it’s current location in 1970. Each year brings new and exciting things to the Lebanon Country Fair. If you have never visited, we invite you to stop by.
The Fair boasts many fine food choices freshly prepared by the Lebanon Lions Club, numerous local churches and non-profit organizations and commercial vendors. The many local non-profit organizations utilize the fair as their main fund raiser. There are commercial vendors as well as fundraising tables for local groups. The Lebanon Country Fair also offers entertainment on our center stage and first class amusement experience right in the heart of eastern Connecticut.
Many of Connecticut’s charitable organizations benefit from the money raised at the Lebanon Fair, including the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation, the CT Lions Low Vision Centers, CRIS Radio, Yale eye research and numerous local centers. Proceeds are also provided to the Lebanon community through scholarships to Lyman Memorial High School graduates, donations to the local food bank Neighbors Helping Neighbors which provides assistance to local families, as well as funding for eye exams and glasses for Lebanon residents. The Lions motto, “We Serve” is evidenced in all of our charitable donations and contributions.
