4 Fun July Events You Don’t Want to Miss

Kutztown Folk Festival

America’s premier Pennsylvania Dutch festival takes place right here in the Lehigh Valley. Visit Kutztown from June 30th-July 8th to witness more than 200 folk artists and American craftsman demonstrating and selling their unique wares. This daily festival features folk-life demonstrations, folklore, live music, dancing and entertainment, plenty of children’s activities and a plethora of delicious food.

The festival runs from 10am to 8pm daily. Tickets are priced as follows — $14 adults, $13 seniors, $5 student (ages 13 to 17) and free for kids 12 and under.

Iron Pigs Games

The Iron Pigs have plenty of home games in July, so head on out to Coca-Cola Park in Allentown to cheer on the home team. In addition to the joy of baseball, each game is paired with a promotion to make your day at the ballpark extra enjoyable. For example, Sundays are Kids Run the Bases days and every Wednesday is ladies’ night. There are even a couple dates when you can bring your pooch to the park, so don’t miss out on this summer fun!

Music Under the Stars

Summer is made for outdoor concerts. Head to Bear Creek Mountain Resort in Macungie every Thursday to listen to talented local artists perform in a beautiful setting. Plenty of delicious food is available for purchase during each weekly show, running from May 31-September 6th. The best part is, these performances are completely free!

Christmas in July

Classic holiday movies make the season extra jolly, so why watch them exclusively in December? Celebrate Christmas in July by taking in a double feature at the Mahoning Drive-In Theater in Leighton. The festivities will be held on July 13th-14th, so gather your loved ones and get in the spirit. Be sure to decorate your car for the occasion, because the most festive ride will win an award.

Tickets are priced as follows — $10 general admission, $7 kids 12 and under and $10 overnight camping pass.
