Kutztown Folk Festival

KUTZTOWN, Pa. -

The Kutztown Folk Festival is now in its 65th year of celebrating Pennsylvania Dutch culture.

Thousands of people from all over the world come out to see hundreds of artisans, food vendors, animals, entertainment, and more at the Berks County celebration.

"So far it's been a real good festival. The weather has cooperated with us. The attendance is up after the first three days, and we're really looking forward to having a nice festival this year," said Steve Sharadin, director of the Kutztown Folk Festival.

Brand new this year: expanded hours.

The festival is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day, except on Sunday, which is the last day of the festival.

To accompany the new hours, there's also special entertainment and half-priced ticket specials after 5 p.m. every night.

The Kutztown Folk Festival is held at the Kutztown Fairgrounds, at 450 Wentz Street in Kutztown.
