History

For decades, a variety of events have been held at the Lebanon Valley Expo Center and Fairgrounds. The Lebanon Expo was first acquired in 1969 when the Lebanon Valley Exposition Corporation, a non-profit organization was formed to buy 52 acres of the old Alexander Bamberger Farm. The primary goal of the venture was to create a permanent site for the annual 4-H fair and FFA activities, which had been held at various sites throughout the county.

The original Lebanon Valley Exposition Corporation Expo Board was made up of mostly 4-H fair board members.

The purpose of the Lebanon Area Fairgrounds was mainly for agricultural events. As the years went by, however, more and more non-agricultural groups showed interest in using the site for sales, auctions, annual meetings, and consumer shows.

Today, the Lebanon Valley Expo Center and Fairgrounds is situated on 77 acres of land and has eight indoor rental units totaling 75,000 square feet: North Hall, Center Hall, East Hall, West Hall, Southeast Hall and a new arena and barn. In 2008 we added the new arena and barn consisting of 26,500 square feet.  The new addition is attached to our existing facility and creates a state of the art livestock facility.  The Lebanon Valley Expo personnel strive to continually provide top level service to our renters.

We offer ample free parking and our food services are next to none.
