Clearfield PA Elks Lodge #540 ,
25th Annual High Country Arts Fair, July 7, 2013
In partnership with ladybisonsports.org . . .
Since 1989 the Clearfield PA Elks Lodge has presented their High Country Arts Fair in cooperation with the
Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources, the administrator of S.B. Elliott State Park, Penfield PA.
Because the Fair is held on publicly owned land the proceeds must all go toward supporting
non-profit organizations in our area.
Several such organizations do their part in helping the Elks with the Fair each year and a total of Twenty-Six
are presented a distribution of the proceeds at a dinner held each October at the Clearfield Lodge.
Scroll down the page for a list of the benifiting associations.
Some 250 Craft Vendors and Artists also take part in the Fair and help attract the always large crowds.
Our guests are greeted by ( and pay their money to ) PER's Gus Yeager and Barry Swift while being serenaded by Lodge
organist Bob Guarino. Actually the money is paid to Gus & Barry only by those wishing to buy a famous
Clearfield Elks P.E.R. Chicken Dinner - admission to the grounds, browsing the many vendors
and enjoying the musical entertainment is all free of charge.
Guests wait patiently in line at the Hot Sausage booth. Like all of the food stands
at the Fair, this booth is staffed by member Elks, their spouses, their kids and
other community minded area residents.
Some of the crowd that always swarms the grounds . . . .
the afternoon's entertainment was provided by Jerry Schickling and North Country . . . .
