In mid-August as many as 18,000 festival-goers will plan on enjoying a weekend of art, crafts, entertainment and gourmet food in Mount Gretna, PA. Where is Mt. Gretna, PA?Visit this link. Every year, during the third weekend of August,this community of some 700 homes and cottages suddenly springs to life, welcoming 265 artists chosen through juried competition and 20,000 visitors who-by their presence acknowledge the role that art plays in their homes, hearts, and lives.
And every year, as thousands of art show patrons return, many others discover Mount Gretna for the first time. For everyone who comes, it is areturn to an earlier era: a time when neighbors greeted neighbors from their front porches, when going for ice cream meant going for a stroll rather than getting into an automobile, and when life itself pulsed at a rocking chair pace.
Very nice things were said about Mt. Gretna on this site by last year's participants, including, "I will certainly sign up for the Mt. Gretna, PA, show again."
