The Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex is an indoor exposition center with an area of over one million square feet. Its exhibition halls, arenas, conference rooms, and banquet facilities have hosted a variety of different events, from business meetings and intimate gatherings, to livestock shows, sporting events, and concerts.
This spacious center was established in 1917, when its first state-wide Farm Show attracted hundreds of farmers and other agricultural industry workers. Its popularity led to increased funding and building expansion, culminating in a $76 million renovation which began in 2001. The Farm Show is the center’s most popular attraction, and is the largest indoor agricultural event in the world. Its most recent event drew 585,000 visitors.
