Celebrate the traditions, foods and crafts of the Pennsylvania Dutch at the 21st annual Pennsylvania Dutch Festival at the historic Reading Terminal Market.
The three-day festival will take place in the Market´s center court seating area and will feature handmade crafts including quilts, woodcrafts, paintings, hand braided rugs, wooden toys and cedar chests.
Traditional foods including chicken pot pie, donuts, ice cream, pies and canned fruits and vegetables will be available to taste and purchase.
On Saturday, August 13, the festival moves outdoors to create a country fair in the city. The 1100 block of Arch Street will be closed to traffic and a petting zoo with sheep, goats, chickens, donkeys, calves, horses and pigs will fill the street.
Amish buggy rides and horse drawn wagon rides around the Market, as well as country and bluegrass bands, round out the entertainment for this great, family-friendly event.
