Local Happenings Calendar

For those who love all things LOCAL, there are lots of events in Lancaster County to be enjoyed.  While it isn’t possible to announce everything of interest, our goal at is to highlight those local happenings that are especially unique and out of the ordinary.  At some point, we will develop an automated system that will accept event submissions by local community folk who are “in the know.”
Throughout the year, there are a variety of events that occur at the same time every year in Lancaster County.  We list some of these below…these are all a real treat and something you don’t want to miss!!!
