Snitz Fest 2014
Saturday, October 4, 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
“Snitz” in German literally means “slice.” For the Pennsylvania German immigrants who first settled in Lancaster County, “snitz” referred especially to sliced, dried apples.
Celebrate the beginnings of Lancaster County, over three hundred years ago! This popular annual Pennsylvania German festival—held on the grounds of the county’s oldest home—features great food, interpreters in traditional dress, hands-on activities and demonstrations of colonial-era arts, crafts and farm life: threshing, quilting, loom weaving, heckling flax, churning butter, cooking over a fire, and making shingles, shoes, candles and corn husk dolls.
Adults: $10 Children 7 - 12: $5 Children 6 and under: Free
No advance tickets required. For more information, call (717) 464-4438 or e-mail .
