Family Fun To Be Had By All At This Year's Kutztown Festival
Published February 26, 2008

Continuing its tradition of celebrating everything Pennsylvania Dutch, the 58th annual Kutztown Festival will take place from June 28th thru July 6th, 2008. The event will feature something for everyone, from folk art exhibits, crafts, quilts, antiques, and collectibles, entertainment, food and family fun.

 

One of the festival’s highlights is the festival’s quilt barn, where more than 1,400 locally made quilts and wall hangings are displayed and can be purchased. The 24 quilts judged to be the best of the show will be auctioned off in an event that draws collectors form the world over. Demonstrations by hundreds of America’s most respected folk artists will take place during each day, including lessons pottery making, woodcarving and weaving. Among the craftsmen returning to the 2008 festival are Ivan Hoyt, Eric Claypoole and Bill Schuster-American’s last remaining hex sign painters. Festival-goers have a wide range of Pennsylvania Dutch delicacies to feast on, ranging from roasted ox to shoofly pie and waffles. Authentic meals prepared by local cooks will be served country style each day. On top of that, visitors can regale in Pennsylvania Dutch folk music and dancing, Mennonite hymn singing and folklore presentations.

 

Children 12 and under are admitted free with an adult and can visit the farmyard puppet theatre, petting zoo, hay maze and the last mule-powered flying swing in America. This year, in addition to the festival’s traditional 4th of July parade, there will be band concerts featuring patriotic music and other events. Located just east of Philadelphia, Kutztown, Pennsylvania is easily accessible from PA Rout 222. To learn more, visit the Website at www.kutztownfestival.com.
