Greater Governor Mifflin League’s Annual Community Days Returns July 5-10

A full Week of delicious food, live music, and entertainment will return July 5th to the Governor Mifflin High School campus in the 45th annual Greater Governor Mifflin League Community Days.

After a year off due to Covid-19, this year’s Community Days will be held from Monday July 5th to Saturday July 10th and has two presenting sponsors – Seidel Auto Group and M&T Bank.

The Greater Governor Mifflin League prides itself on presenting the best Free Entertainment in Berks with national acts and well-known regional bands as well as its Spectacular Fireworks Display to conclude the festival each year on Saturday night.

Founded in 1976, the Greater Governor Mifflin League is a non-profit organization devoted to giving back to the community. 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 10th.

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 its history, the GGML has given $500,000 back to the Governor Mifflin community.
