The Kutztown Folk Festival is an annual tradition for many people in Southeastern Pennsylvania.  Now in its 62nd year, it is the oldest folk life festival in the country. 

The Kutztown Folk Festival is a place to see the work of area craftspeople, to enjoy Pennsylvania Dutch food, a place for children to have fun with hay rides, mural painting and other activities geared for children, and a place to enjoy live music.  The fun and activities are on going between 9AM and 6PM.

People from all over the country come to this event.  But if you live in Delaware County, Kutztown is approximately 70 miles from this area, around an hour and a half drive.

62 years is an amazing run. Enjoy your time at the festival you guys. And have a safe and happy 4th too.

That's a lot of festivals, and sure to be fun with some fantastic country cooking. More than a day trip for me, however. Hope all that go enjoy.

The Kutztown Folk Festival sounds wonderful, Gloria. I love those festivals and they must have this one down perfect if it's been around for 62 years.

Hi Gloria,

I'm so glad I found your post today. A long time ago I stopped at a garage sale in Rhode Island and bought a Pennsylvania Dutch Cook Book of Fine Recipes. The recipes were compiled from tried and tested recipes handed down by the early Dutch settlers in Pennsylvania. I just dug it out of my cabinets and saw that it was copyrighted in 1961. I haven't looked at that cookbook for years and as I flip through the pages, I see there are poems, lots of drawings and some great recipes too. I remember using it a lot when I raised my kids. Between your post and this recipe book, I'm going to learn a lot today!

Thanks Gloria :)

After being in that part of the country a couple years ago, I'd really enjoy a festival like that.  My neighbors, a few doors down, have one of those "Wilkum" signs hanging over their garage.
