Street Fair
SEPTEMBER 15, 2018

11:00 am …….. 4:00 pm

This outdoor event is held on the street of the 300 block of North Queen Street, Lancaster, PA and will feature 30+ vendors and suppliers of letterpress equipment, foundry type, cards, posters, broadsides, ephemera, and more. There will also be food trucks, live music and the unique shops of the 300 block will be open during the fair.
New this year – The Printer’s Fair Beer Garden.  Our friends at Wacker Brewing Company will be serving cold brew during the fair, and they will be brewing a special printer’s brew using a recipe of Ben Franklin, Poor Richards Ale, just for the fair.  Bring your ID you must be 21 years old or older.
This year we are on the quest to set a World’s Record for the most young people printing with a potato on one day. We believe potato printing showcases not only basic printing skills but also the rich agriculture that exists in Lancaster and the region. Potato printing is something people of all ages can do and be as simple or artistic as the printer wants it to be.
