Experience Magical Holiday Events
Every season of the year features countless events perfect for the entire family.
In the fall, gather the kids for fun-filled events, including fall festivals at Northern Star Farm and Pennypacker Mills and a Oktoberfest celebration at Well Crafted Beer Company's Bday Bash. For even more family fun, pay a weekend visit to Merrymead Farm to go pumpkin picking, explore a five-acre corn maze, and sample delicious homemade ice cream and cider donuts. For a fun date night, check out Elmwood Park Zoo’s popular adults-only Beast of a Feast fundraiser, where patrons can sample food and beverages from local restaurants and breweries, get up close and personal with zoo animals, and participate in a giraffe feeding while enjoying live music and entertainment.
During winter, choose from countless holiday events, such as the incredible Wild Lights at Elmwood Park Zoo. For a bit of history, visit Narberth, which transforms into 19th-century London for its annual Dickens Festival honoring author Charles Dickens with lots of caroling, costumed performers, and family-friendly activities. There’s also the annual Christmas tour of the Glencairn Castle in the Bryn Athyn Historic District.
During the summer, celebrate our nation’s history at various historical landmarks, including Valley Forge National Historical Park. While at the park, take a scenic trolley tour and stop by the Visitor Center to learn more about the history of Valley Forge on America's birthday.
