ABOUT US
Our History

In 1953, a group of Showmen in the western part of the State met with the intention of working together to keep the Outdoor Amusement Industry alive and strong through their combined efforts. They were known as the Golden Triangle Showmen' Association. Twelve years later, across the State, another group of Showmen with the same goals got together and formed the Lehigh Valley Showmen's Association. These two groups merged together in 1967 under the name of the Pennsylvania State Showmen's Association agreeing to work for the betterment of all Showmen and the Outdoor Amusement Industry.

Many of these men are still with us still working for those same goals envisioned all those years ago They have been joined by generations of Showmen and have become stronger and stronger until now they are respected throughout the Industry and across the county for their accomplishments.

The P.S.S.A. has grown because its members have learned to put their individual goals aside for the common goals of the Industry. This unity has given them the strength and foresight necessary to continue their work into the next century.

May we always remember our goals and work to the best of our human ability to keep the Outdoor Amusement Industry the best of America's Family Entertainment.
