Events & Festivals

Pennsylvania’s annual calendar of events and festivals is chock-full of distinctive celebrations that make the state unique. Celebrate a groundhog’s weather prediction, classic cars, local music, motorcycles, arts, apples, Civil War re-enactments, the birthplace of the Jeep, strutting mummers on New Year’s Day and even garlic. Yes, garlic.

And from spring to fall, Pennsylvania offers more than 100 agricultural fairs – with no shortage of 4-H animals, tractor pulls, top entertainment and carnival rides.

Stare into the dazzling galaxy of lights on the midway. Follow the scent of fried dough to the funnel cakes. Lick the remnants of cotton candy off your fingers. Lose the gravity weighing you down with a turn on the Ferris wheel.
