Penn’s Colony Festival – Saxonburg, Pennsylvania – My Experience

This post documents my experience on September 29, 2019.

The Penn’s Colony Festival invites festival goers to a wooded area in Saxonburg, Pennsylvania…

…only to transport them to the mid 1700’s…

…where children are taught of different times…

…military men of rank freely travel about on horseback…

…and parades are done through the market streets…

…as festival goers and villagers can shop, shop and shop.

Vendors were plentiful, offering forged cutlery and swords (Forged in Kol)…

…hand tooled leather goods (Shananigens in Leather)…

…historical costumes (Bonnets and Breeches)…

…wooden toys galore (JPS Woodcraft)…

…needle felted holiday figures (Wools, Jewels and Doodles Too).

…handcrafted woven baskets (The Basketman)…

…and various goods to help assist in their beauty (Una Biologicals)…

…their cooking (The Olive Tap)…

…and even their self expression (Keystone Steel Co.).

In terms of entertainment, the festival had two stages with all sorts of performances…

…an exhibition of “natural wonders”…

…like this fantastic mermaid, for instance…

…and activities for the kids, including panning for gems…

…pony rides…

…face painting…

…and artistic fun…

…where painting tools included leaves and potatoes.

Finally, in terms of food, while festival goers could find delicacies from vendors that included fudge and chocolate covered apples (right – Applelicious)….

…and smaller staples, such as coffee and hot dogs, from festival concessions spread about…

…there was a central food court area…

…with ample seating…

…and food options that included roast beef and onion rings…

…BBQ, pizza…

…huge smoked turkey legs…

…and apple dumplings ala mode.

I ended nabbing something to eat at the bake house…

…where I enjoyed a warmed slice of artisan bread with molasses butter and salted pork.

Rich and delicious!
