Supporting our local community - Carlisle Summerfair

Written by Emily Bear

Carlisle Summerfair, a week-long celebration of family-friendly events held downtown, has been the kick-off of summer in our hometown for 39 years. This week is filled with entertaining events like musicals, carnivals, sporting events, and an evening with the Harrisburg Symphony. Local businesses and organizations come together to volunteer and donate time and money to help keep Summerfair events free of charge.


We value Summerfair because the community comes together to celebrate the arts, embrace downtown, and spend time with family and friends. We love being able to work with organizations that we are passionate about and align with our values. We’ve been honored to have the opportunity to enhance Summerfair’s branding by lovingly donating a bright new logo, brochure and poster designs, and mobile-friendly website. The new brand still nods to the previous look and feel from the 70s, but with a modern update. Be sure to check out the whole project!

If you live or work in Carlisle, and are looking for a way to give back to your community, we highly recommend volunteering at a Summerfair event, sponsoring an activity, or joining the board to plan the whole celebration. If you don’t live in Carlisle, we hope you search for events and organizations that benefit your hometown and get involved in a way that your talents can be used to their maximum potential.
