Grange FairThe Middletown Grange Fair – which actually takes place in Wrightstown – opens today and continues through Sunday. If you’ve never been, well, you just need to go. It’s hard to describe. For this former city girl, it’s a wonder. It’s one of the reasons to live in Bucks County, as far as we’re concerned.

This isn’t technically a “food” event. Even though there are many animals there, they are the living kind – rabbits, pigs, chickens, cows, you name it. The fair is a reminder that Bucks County is still an agricultural place, where people raise livestock and are proud of it.

But…there will be food, of course. The fair is famous for its chicken dinners. According to an article in The Intelligencer today, 4,000 barbecue dinners are expected to be served this year at the fair, surpassing last year’s approximately 3,700 dinners. The chicken dinner includes a half chicken, butter parsley potatoes, corn on the cob, cranberry sauce, roll and butter, beverage and ice cream. Not exactly low-carb, but we’ll be there to sample the goods and post photos (it’s our responsibility to our readers). There is also a big food court with just about every summer time fair food you’d want. The Plumsteadville Grange food booth will be selling Haring Brothers hot dogs and hamburgers.

Check out the schedule of events in The Intell, along with the schedule of events on the Grange Web site. And check back here at Bucks County Taste for updates and photos – maybe even a video or two.

  1. […] A big heads-up – the 62nd Annual Middletown Grange Fair starts on Wednesday, August 18th and goes through Sunday, August 22nd. It’s kind of our local county fair, and if you’ve never been, go. The food is…so-so, but the chicken dinner is a great deal (see last year’s post). […]
