The Deal

Penn's Colony Festival preserves the long-standing American tradition of homespun craftsmanship during its annual extravaganza. More than 180 artisans and craft-folk set up shop in the colony, chatting with guests and selling their work. Meanwhile, actors and enthusiasts dress in period-specific garb and delight themselves in all manner of general merriment.

The festival takes place on the weekends of September 21–22, and September 28–29.

Penn's Colony Event Grounds

Penn's Colony hosts a duo of festivals during the year, beginning with the semi-annual Wine Time tasting event in June. Later in summer, Penn's Colony Festival, which is held in September, replicates an early American colonial village with lively 18th-century bagpipe music, French and Indian War battle reenactments, and activities such as basket-weaving and nine-pin bowling. More than 180 artisans congregate at the sprawling, tree-shaded colonial village, setting up booths displaying furniture, art, and gifts. Meanwhile, local gourmet-food vendors hawk smoked sausages, apple dumplings, and beef stew. Throughout the year, the colony's grounds are available for special events such as antique shows, retreats, and weddings, at which unruly uncles can be confined in a pillory.
