45th Annual Bark Peeler’s Festival
July 6 - July 7
Our biggest event of the year! This festival, which honors Pennsylvania’s Lumbering Heritage, treats thousands of visitors to lively special events, contests, and demonstrations all celebrating “woodhick” skills. Unique food and craft vendors provide guests with ample shopping and culinary opportunities. There is live music throughout the weekend, crafts and games at the kid’s corner, an operating steam-powered circular sawmill and birch still, blacksmithing, chainsaw carving, and door prizes. Visitors are encouraged to compete in the greased pole, log rolling, cross-cut saw, and birling competitions to earn the title “Grand Champion Barkpeeler” and the associated cash prizes.
