What’s cooking? Lot’s of homemade tailgate foods — salsas, pickles, burgers, dips, salads and delectable drinks at the Eagles and Steelers tailgate tents.

In the heart of Lancaster County, we’re celebrating autumn and tailgate season. I love this time of year when our Village comes alive with themed scarecrows, pumpkins and corn shocks. Every year Kitchen Kettle Village pays tribute to tailgating season with a two-day food festival filled with delicious and sometimes crazy events.

There are plenty of activities for young and old, families and couples alike. See the cartoon character themed scarecrows throughout the village and vote for your favorite. Savor a tasty sample of homemade tailgate foods at one of our cooking demonstrations or sampling tables. Tap your toes to a Dixieland Band. Compete at our Pumpkin Whoopie Pie Filling Contest.

Don't miss the Tailgate Games area on Saturday including a bounce house, tailgate toss, pumpkin bowling & face painting and the Tailgate Parade at noon featuring the Pequea Valley Band, cheerleaders and more!

We can’t wait to see you at this year’s Tailgate Festival in Intercourse, Pa.
