Folk Festival Aug 11 - 12 Perkiomenville

Goschenhoppen Folk Festival    August 11 - 12, 2017    Perkiomenville, Montgomery County

Ha! This festival may be a bit different than all the rest. The GoshenHoppen Historians have kept this festival true to history thus making it a truly educational experience. This Folk Festival is a non-commercial family oriented day in Goschenhoppen. Old fashioned foods and Pennsylvania Dutch meals are for sale on the festival grounds.

This family friendly event provides not just an exceptional educational experience, but also gives the children an opportunity to try first hand the pleasantries of a former time. Dipping candles, creating a rag doll, petting a calf, sampling potato candy, or rolling a barrel hoop bring a sure smile. Moms and Dads will find a new appreciation of the appliances and gadgets that fill homes and garages today when the labor to make dinner or furnish a home in times past is demonstrated: blacksmiths, tinsmiths and whitesmiths sweat over the forges, farmers hoist heavy loads of grain into the horse operated fanning mill, and women make every meal from scratch. Needle workers show the painstaking process of garment construction – starting with the flax seed to the hemming of a linen shirt with all the steps in between.
