Splash Into Summer 2018

Free festival celebrates the beginning of summer while raising funds for Lacaster based non-profit


Intercourse, PA, June 8, 2018—The summer season kicks-off at Kitchen Kettle with the new Splash into Summer Festival. Kitchen Kettle Village has teamed up with Music For Everyone to create a fun summer day filled with music, grilled foods, yard games, contests and more. Guests have the opportunity to help raise funds for MFE by making a donation into a musician’s case, patronizing the Kid’s Fun Zone or taking a chance to win a special gift basket valued at over $400 (by donation only). All proceeds collected for the day will go directly to MFE, a Lancaster based non-profit dedicated to raising awareness and resources to strengthen the role music plays in local schools and communities. Festival coordinator Lisa Horn commented, “The event is perfect for locals, as well as visitors to Lancaster County. It also gives MFE the opportunity to reach a broader audience with their message and raise funds.”


This event will precede many other “Free at KKV” Events and Festivals slated for the year such as, Yummie’s Birthday Bash on August 4th, the Tailgating Festival on September 14th and 15th and the Kitchen Kettle Christmas Celebrations-Friday nights & Saturdays beginning on Friday, November 23rd, 2018.
