The Kutztown Folk Festival is the oldest continuously operated folklife festival in America. This nine-day event continues to draw visitors from all over the world, entertaining families while providing valuable insight into the traditions of the Pennsylvania Dutch and their fascinating way of life. Children's activities abound and admission is free for children 12 and under. The festival also houses the largest quilt sale in America and has an internationally attended Quilt Auction of top prize-winning quilts.

NEW in 2022! 

Welcome to our Fresh Fest Market

at The Grove, located right at the Kutztown Folk festival grounds. This new

healthier eating option will offer fresh flavors, locally produced food, local

craft beers and spirits. You will know you and your family are eating quality,

natural foods-and best of all-you don’t have to do the cooking! 

In addition to the new fresh

foods and drink offerings this year, we will have a stage with demonstrations,

presentations, and musical entertainment. This is a great way for kids to have

fun and learn where their food comes from at the same time!

At the Kutztown Folk Festival, a visitor experiences more music, more entertainment, more fun, and far less work than they would in a Pennsylvania Dutch household. But the purpose of the festival is still fulfilled, as evidenced by the continued participation of the local Pennsylvania Dutch community as well as many of the foremost experts and scholars of this fascinating microcosm of America. This unusual nine-day festival had been featured twice in National Geographic and has been called "one of the most unique festivals on the East coast" by the Washington Post, with good reason.
