Residents of Northeastern Pennsylvania will have a brand new, exciting, and family-friendly entertainment option this fall.

It was announced today exclusively on NEPA Scene that Matt Kester Productions has partnered with the Electric City Music Conference, SwikaS Amusements, The V-Spot, and the Circle Drive-In Theatre to establish the NEPA Fair – four days of live music, rides, movies, food, drinks, and other entertainment just outside of Scranton.

The event will run from Thursday, Sept. 15 through Sunday, Sept. 18 at the Circle Drive-In (1911 Scranton/Carbondale Hwy., Dickson City).

“This family-friendly, fun-for-all fair is going to bring the best of NEPA together for one amazing weekend. The NEPA Fair was designed by professionals to ensure a cost-effective event for the whole family,” organizer Matt Kester said.

Admission to the fair will include free rides provided by SwikaS Amusements, late-night movies by the Circle Drive-In, and a full schedule of musical performances presented by the Electric City Music Conference, including sets by popular local bands Burn the Jukebox on Thursday, Nowhere Slow on Friday, Modern Ties on Saturday, and Old Friends on Sunday.

The event will also feature a beer tent provided by The V-Spot, food vendors, a flea market on Sunday, bingo, games, and raffles.

“Partnering with the NEPA Fair was a no-brainer for us. The goal of the Electric City Music Conference has always been to highlight talented musicians. This partnership provides another innovative opportunity for conference participants,” ECMC organizer Joe Caviston explained.

The NEPA Fair will serve as one of the “stages” at the Electric City Music Conference this year and host other aspects of the event to be announced shortly.

“Tickets are only $10 for a day or you can buy an entire weekend pass for $22. Keeping this event affordable for an entire family is our No. 1 priority,” Kester emphasized.

Tickets purchased prior to September will be sold at a discounted rate. Weekend passes are only available online via Eventbrite. By purchasing online, patrons will be able to avoid delays at the gate. Children under 2 years old are free.

Organizers noted that everyone should stay tuned to thenepafair.com and social media for more announcements in the coming months.
