Pennsylvania Dutch Festival rides back into Reading Terminal Market

Reading Terminal Market

Lancaster County is visiting Center City once again for this year's Pennsylvania Dutch Festival from Thursday, August 8 to Saturday, August 10 at Reading Terminal Market.

Bring home Pennsylvania Dutch favorites like homemade jams and baked goods, as well as locally-cultivated cheeses and produce from the many vendors at this three-day festival.

Along with wonderful food vendors, you can also buy handmade designs in the festival's craft bazaar. Artisan Amish crafters specializing in furniture, toys, accessories and more will work their artistic magic in front of your eyes and you'll be able to bring the beautiful creations home.

The festival hits the streets on August 10 for a country-style fair right outside of Reading Terminal Market on Arch Street. Hop on a classic Amish horse buggy and ride around the market in true PA Dutch fashion. Youngns' can also make new four-legged friends at the petting zoo while fantastic, live jazz bands play their toe-tappin' tunes throughout the day.

With a plethora of vendors and activities available, there is no need to drive all the way out to Lancaster for some Amish-style fun.

Thursday, August 8 – Saturday, August 10
8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Reading Terminal Market, 51 N. 12th St., Philadelphia, PA 19107
