Our 2022 Rhubarb Festival is happening on May 20-21, 2022!

In the heart of Lancaster County, we've been celebrating rhubarb for over 30 years. I love this time of year when our village comes alive with the sweet aroma of rhubarb jam bubbling in our kettles. Rhubarb is the harbinger of spring in Pennsylvania Dutch Country, and every year Kitchen Kettle Village pays tribute with a two-day food festival filled with delicious and sometimes zany events.


There are plenty of activities for young and old, families and couples alike. See the fastest rhubarb cars in the world’s only rhubarb race-car derby. Dance down Pepper Lane to live music and interact with fun enetrtainers. Pay tribute to our vent own Rhubarb King & Queen and much more.

What's Cooking?

Lot's of homemade rhubarb foods — rhubarb dips, sauces, pies & delectable drinks. We can't wait to see you at this year's Rhubarb Festival in Intercourse, Pa.
