As the air grows cooler and the leaves more colorful, it feels as if Lancaster was made for this time of year. The brisker autumn weather is perfect for wandering through Kitchen Kettle Village enjoying hot spiced cider or freshly handmade baked goods.

Fall in Lancaster County is also harvest time and we celebrate here at Kitchen Kettle Village with our oldest festival - Tailgating Festival, featuring the delicious foods of autumn and tailgating. You'll find the traditional foods associated with PA Dutch Country, but you just might find some new twists you weren't expecting!

To stay up on all the fantastic things to do, see, and experience during autumn at Kitchen Kettle Village, check back often. We'll spotlight new fall activities here all season long.

Don't miss our Pink Party on Saturday, October 7th when we raise funds for breast cancer research and celebrate cancer survivors!
