The Summer Dancefest Committee is a direct result of the huge success of the town's tercentenary celebration in2000. With a desire to make this an annual event, a committee was established to continue with an annual July celebration. In its 8th year, this event is sponsored by local businesses and supported by the townspeople of Lebanon. Under a huge tent and picnic like atmosphere on the historic Lebanon Green, it is celebrated with music by local musicians, children's activities, refreshments by our local fire department and culminates with a huge fireworks display.
Since 1960, The Lebanon Lions Club has operated the Lebanon Country Fair. Started on the Lebanon Green, the fair moved to its current location at the Lebanon Lions Fair Grounds in 1970. The fair takes place the weekend of the second Sunday in August of every year. The fair features commercial vendors as well as fund raising booths for local organizations. Many local groups use the fair as their main fundraising activity throughout the year. Tractor pulls, monster trucks, rides, fair food, displays, crafts, and the Miss Lebanon pageant are bound to impress and amuse. Parking is available at the fairgrounds with additional parking and shuttle service to the fair from Lyman Memorial High School.
