Our History

Established in 1969 we are a true family business that takes pride in providing events of all sizes; the safest, cleanest, and brightest midway with a level of experience that is second to none.


"Excellence in Family Fun" is our motto and our goal. This has been the foundation of our business since the very beginning.

In 1969 our family patriarch, Robert Bryer founded ABA with the idea that a carnival should provide more for an event than just a means to make money. Whether it is a church parish or a local chamber of commerce, a carnival can be a great fundraiser. There is more to ABA than just the “bottom line”. First, our rides have been kept at the highest quality and safety. Our rides are constantly updated and renovated to provide a fresh look and the latest safety updates year after year.

Next, our games are filled with great family fun knowing that they are for everyone to play. Unlike a ride you are never too short or too young, and with almost every game being a prize everytime you are sure to take home a memory. Finally, the food provided by American Banner Amusements is the definition of classic carnival treats. From fresh made funnel cakes cooked to order to hand spun cotton candy, ABA knows how to “Sweeten the Fun”.

These are just a few examples of American Banner Amusements’ commitment to provide “Excellence in Family Fun”.
