Farm animal displays, large midway of rides and games, lots of food to choose from, free and paid entertainment on the main stage. Depends what you're likes are. http://www.yorkfair.com/

I have to agree with the previous poster - it's your typical county fair. If you are into the rides, games, greasy food, etc. then go for it. I haven't been there in years as I had a problem paying for parking and then paying to get into the fair.

Yes, it's a fleece-athon. You almost feel as if you willingly allowed your pocket to be picked as you exit.

I would suggest seeing if any of the Lancaster county towns/boroughs are having their annual fairs during your visit. These are similar, but much smaller in scale and no admission or parking charges. Most feature a parade one eve, farm exhibits, great local food, rides and carnival games, etc. They get crowded, so go early or be prepared for a hike after finding a parking spot.

Denver Fair goes on the same time as York. It is a shorter time, smaller fair, but free admission and the parking if I remember correctly goes to a local organization (maybe the firemen). York Fair is one of the top three fairs in the state. Denver is probably somewhere in the middle. Depends what you want.
