Local Central PA readers, don’t miss this fun event in our neck of the woods! The annual Mount Gretna Outdoor Art Show is coming soon, August 18 and 19. The hours on Saturday August 18 are from 9am to 6pm; Sunday hours are 9am to 5pm. Admission at the gate is $8 for ages 12 and older. Kids are free, but honestly, if you can avoid bringing your kids I would. There are so many beautiful arts and crafts to see and I don’t know about you but my kids don’t have the patience to let me enjoy it. I’ve gone with a friend for the past several years and we have a great time doing an ‘adult’ thing together. The highlight of our day: the food! It’s sooooooo good! Plus when we get done with the art show we cross the road and check out the craft fair, similar to the art show but it seems like everything is more affordable on that side of the road, and that’s totally free! It’s like two shows for the price of one.
If you’re local you can pick up discount coupons to save yourself $1 off admission at Collin’s Grocery (Colebrook), Mt. Gretna Pizzeria (Mt. Gretna), the Mt. Gretna Playhouse and from any participating artist.
Find all the information you need here including directions and a list of exhibitors. If you’re within driving distance try to check it out. I look forward to it every year and always find the best, most unique Christmas gifts there!
