60th Annual Springs Folk Festival
October 6 & 7, 2017

Hours: 9:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M.

The Springs Folk Festival invites you to join in the celebration of the arts, skills and labors of our forefathers. Watch the men and women baking bread and weaving, the men hewing logs and threshing grain and the children enjoying themselves on an old-time hayride. The lilting notes of blue grass groups, gospel music and children singing acapella fill the air with continuous performances in an enclosed program building. Of course, the Mountain Anthems singing close harmony is always a thrill.

The Springs Museum on the grounds boasts thousands of artifacts of the Casselman Valley area.

An exceptional array of quality handcrafted items - truly one-of-a-kind shopping adventure - paintings, baskets, wood crafted furniture, quilts and dulcimers - over 100 juried artisans demonstrating their craft. Everyone will enjoy the feeling of being a kid again as they sample the apple fritters, kettle corn and homemade ice cream. Pennsylvania Dutch sausage meals, pancakes and sausage, bean soup, homemade bread baked in an outdoor kiln, doughnuts fried as you watch - sounds delectable!"
