Fair Administration 

An annual event since 1971, The Hebron Harvest Fair has grown to become one of the largest agricultural fairs in Connecticut with unique attractions, fan favorite food and four days of fun. The Hebron Harvest Fair is produced by the Hebron Lions Agricultural Society, a 501(c)(5) non-profit organization. With professional management and volunteer support from the Hebron Lions Club, net proceeds produced from the Hebron Harvest Fair are used to fund grants that support local and national charitable causes thru the Hebron Lions Charities, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. The Hebron Lions Agricultural Society is a member of the Association of Connecticut Fairs (ACF) and the International Association of Fairs & Expositions (IAFE).
