GREATER GOVERNOR MIFFLIN LEAGUE’S ANNUAL COMMUNITY DAYS PRESENTED BY SEIDEL AUTO GROUP FEATURING THE M&T BANK MAIN STAGE SPECIAL PENN VALLEY SHOWS PREVIEW WEEKEND JUNE 30 – JULY 2 PRESENTED BY KLEE FUNERAL HOME

Community Days 2023 will be a full week of events planned at a new location on the campus of Governor Mifflin Intermediate School for the 47th annual festival. The change in location is due to construction on the High School Campus. The Intermediate School’s address is 600 Governor Drive, Shillington, PA 19607, just a few blocks away.

This year’s festival will be held from July 3rd to July 8th with all of the entertainment, games, rides, and food that our fairgoers have come to know for close to 50 years.

NEW THIS YEAR! There will be a three-day, new location, preview from June 30th to July 2nd with rides, games, and food provided exclusively by Penn Valley Shows.

The Greater Governor Mifflin League (GGML) was founded in 1976 as non-profit organization devoted to giving back to the community. In every year since, the GGML has presented a unique community fair featuring food, games, rides, and some of the best regional entertainment, including a spectacular “One-of-a-Kind” Fireworks finale which will culminate this year on Saturday, July 9th. Its main goal has been to return proceeds from the fair back into the community in the form of contributions to local fire companies, ambulance associations, scout troops, school projects, community projects, and scholarships, just to name a few. In our history, the GGML has given over $500,000 back to the Governor Mifflin community.
