When and where is the Pear Fair this year?
This year's Pear Fair will be held on Saturday, September 15th from 11a-5p. The location is the same as it's always been - under the big tent on the corner of 22nd and College Streets in Cedar Falls. That's Cedar Falls Municipal Lot G, we're right next to Octopus!
How long has the Pear Fair been around? How many people attend Pear Fair?
We're thrilled to say this year is our seventh birthday! The Pear Fair was first founded in September of 2010. Pear Fair attendance has grown each year to 1200+ in 2017.
