What is Fly Magazine?

Fly Magazine is a guide to dining, entertainment and nightlife. Fly Magazine publishes three separate editions covering Lancaster, York and Harrisburg. Each monthly edition includes more entertainment coverage than any other area publication. For more general information, click here.


Fly Magazine Readership
Fly Magazine targets Lancaster, York and Harrisburg residents between the ages of 18 and 40 who are socially active and possess disposable income.

  • This target audience is maintained through editorial content and strict control of circulation and distribution.
  • The high concentration of socially active readers is maintained through limiting the distribution outlets to bars, restaurants and other carefully selected locations.
  • This target market is verified by periodic reader surveys.

Circulation & Distribution
To maintain the desired readership, Fly Magazine's distribution outlets are limited to carefully selected locations. The quantities provided to each outlet are monitored and adjusted on a monthly basis to minimize unused copies and provide accurate circulation numbers.

  • Controlled circulation prevents "over-inflated" circulation figures and helps keep ad rates low.
  • Fly Magazine is distributed free of charge to its readers.
  • Fly Magazine guarantees delivery by the first of the month.
  • Circulation and distribution outlets increase monthly; contact the Fly Magazine office for current circulation figures.
