2022 Saxonburg Carnival -- June 28-July 2
Saxonburg Volunteer Fire Company is committed to serving the residents and businesses in south-eastern Butler County. Saxonburg VFC does NOT receive ANY tax support and therefore must spend hundreds of hours in fundraising efforts to cover the operational costs necessary to serve this community. This is in addition to the hundreds of hours spent training for and responding to emergencies. We truly appreciate the support we receive for these efforts.

One of Saxonburg VFC's major fundraising efforts is the annual Firemen’s Carnival. This event has been a tradition in Saxonburg and very popular event in past years. In recent years, Fireman's Carnival has been less effective as a major fundraiser.
Saxonburg VFC is proud to announce that we are returning to the traditional Carnival with C&L Shows as our 2022 ride vendor and Carnival dates of Tuesday, June through 28 Saturday, July 2.

This year’s Carnival event will be similar to Carnivals of the pre-COVID past. We are also planning a 2022 Pet Parade on Tuesday, June 28. We are happy to provide this community event for friends and families to gather for great food, good games and great rides. Thank you for your continued support and we hope you’ll come to the event and enjoy the program that is planned.
What is the 2022 Carnival format? Saxonburg VFC is trying to return to the original Carnival Format beginning on Tuesday, June 28 and running through Saturday, July 2. .
What are the Carnival hours? Saxonburg Carnival is open from 6pm until close (usually around 11pm) each night.
Are the Carnival dates different? We are having the event in Junw 28-July 2 because that was the date we could arrange with C&L Shows, this year's Carnival Ride Vendor. The Carnival open on Tuesday, June 28 and runs through Saturday, July 2..
Are there Gate fees? Because we had such a fantastict response from area companies to sponsor the Carnival Gate EVERY night, there is no charge for entry to the Carnival Grounds, we will NOT have the $2 gate fee in 2022—it will be free to get in!

Our many thanks to those businesses who came forward to help sponsor the 2022 Saxonburg Carnival and we hope you will support them as well! Saxonburg VFC will be selling the presale ride tickets for those who wish to purchase tickets early. Prices and dates of availability will be shared as soon as we have information available.
