Mark Your Calendars Now for the 2018 PA Heritage Festival featuring the Heritage Village and Artisan Marketplace with demonstrations, the region's largest display of antique carriages and sleighs and the finest in handcrafted traditional, folk and contemporary fine arts and crafts along with the best in Pennsylvania/New York Southern Tier foods and agricultural products.
The PA Heritage Festival is the largest living history festival in the Twin Tiers. Located at The Heritage Village and Museum grounds in Troy Pennsylvania, the festival features hundreds of demonstrators and artisans on the grounds of the fully restored Heritage Village.
If fibers are your thing, the 40 by 80 ft, textile tent showcases many examples of our home heritage. Large looms, spinning and weaving wool, flax, quilting and quilling. If you have an interest, you can probably find it under the tent.
As you walk the grounds, visit the Civil War encampment. March in a military parade and enjoy the cannons as the North and South fire on each other and their loud reports echo throughout the valley.
The largest collection of carriages, buggies, and sleighs are a treat in the 125 foot long restored Carriage House.
Stroll through the rest of the village containing a Barbershop, Children's Church, a Schoolhouse, Sugar Shack, then make your way to the Inn. The Inn is a fully restored 1822 Stage Coach Inn. More demonstrators are located inside of the Inn.
If you like shopping, the Artisan Marketplace fills two large display buildings with juried vendors from New York and Pennsylvania. The very best of regional Woodworking, Jewelry, Soaps, Foods, Quilts, and even Christmas ornaments will help to make your gift buying easy. Spend time to talk with these artisans and learn how their work is produced and get a feel for all their efforts to bring quality products to you.
If you like music, it's here for you at the stage. Check out the bands and entertainment on the Music tab of this website.
There's a kids games area with activities from kite making to stilt walking. And the Bradford County Farm Museum is full of interesting information for the kid in all of us.
