On July 14, 2020, officials in Philadelphia announced that all large gatherings would be canceled through February 28, 2021. There may be some events below that are in the region but outside the city (please double check with the event website to confirm those are still happening), but expect to see most of the festivals below come back next year instead of occurring this year.
We’re leaving them up for now, as we are trying to update events across the country (as well as updating the farms and haunted houses) as quickly as possible, and we’re a very small family business!
Please be safe, everyone! This is also our region, and we’re going through all this with you!
