2024 Saxonburg Carnival -- June 25-29
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 2024ride vendor and Carnival dates of Tuesday, June 25 through Saturday, June 29.

We are planning a 2024 Pet Parade on Tuesday, June 25. We are happy to provide this community event for friends and families to gather for great food, good games and great rides.

We are planning a 2024 Water Battle on Wednesday, June 26.

We are also planning the 2024 Fireman's Parade on Thursday, June 27. 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 2024 Carnival format? Saxonburg VFC is trying to return to the original Carnival Format beginning on Tuesday, June 25 and running through Saturday, June 29.
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 June 25-29 because that was the date we could arrange with C&L Shows, this year's Carnival Ride Vendor. The Carnival open on Tuesday, June 25 and runs through Saturday, June 29.
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 2024—it will be free to get in!

Our many thanks to those businesses who came forward to help sponsor the 2023 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.
