The 100th Pennsylvania Farm Show runs January 9-16, and this year’s centennial events are definitely worth the trip. Luckily, there are many ways to get there.


If you’re coming from outside the Harrisburg area, why not try the train? PennDOT and Amtrak’s partnership initiative — PA Trips By Train — offers a great travel deal for Farm Show goers that includes:

  • Buy one, get one 40% off Amtrak tickets
  • 50% off Amtrak ticket for kids ages 2 through 12
  • FREE fountain drink in a collectible 2016 PA Farm Show souvenir cup
  • Buy one/get one free ticket for the First Frontier Circuit Rodeo on Family Night — Thursday, January 14
  • FREE Uber ride

You can also take advantage of free Capital Area Transit buses running between the Farm Show Complex and various locations around Harrisburg between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. throughout the work week. No bus pass is required!
