It is June; It is Kutztown... it must be the Kutztown Folk Festival.
This year (2009), the festival time begins on 27JUN amd lasts through the 4th of July.
It is a week of crafts and eating and music. There are special events for the adults including folk art demonstrations and live country music. There are special events for the kids including wall paintings and animal petting. There is a living history demonstration with real Pennsylvania Dutch people from the historical society to show you what Mennonite living and farming was all about.
And there are all kinds of food to taste and beverages to drink.
Whether you come for a single day or stay the whole week, you are not going to be the least bored. There is always plenty to see and do.
$12 adult admission daily or get an all-week pass for $20.
to get there:
we took route I-476 to the Krocksville exit and then headed west on Cetronia Road to route US222 and kept going west on US222 to Kutztown. See signs in Kutztown for free parking

Kutztown is such a quiet place that I can't think of a single warning. You'll like it here. Low crime, lots of college students, pleasant people, lousy weather.
Just use common sense and you'll have a fine time during your Kutztown stay.

Just an old but well preserved small town train depot. Sometimes a railroad group runs a special train on the local tracks.

Berkleigh Golf Club is easily accessible from Kutztown Road. This venerable course (over 80 years old) has been kept to the highest quality for many years and is a premium level venue.
The fairways are fairly wide and most are heavily tree-lined (so keep the ball in-bounds). The course is relatively long, ranging from 6400 yards to 7000 yards but is also relatively flat so the exertion needed to play is not too bad. A full round will take most of the morning though, especially on the weekends when foursomes abound.
There is a beautiful country club which hosts special events, reunions and weddings.
The pro-shop is fully stocked for anything a golfer needs (and some souvenier trinkets also).
The snack shop serves finger foods and both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
Course times are 7am to 8pm, seven days a week from June through October and weekends in May and November.
The full-course rate including cart (recommended) is under $50 and cost varies according to your age and day of week and time of day. (see website for details).
Equipment: Make sure you have a cap because there is little shade on the course (unless you shank shots into the trees)
