Tailgate Festival

« All Events

In the heart of Lancaster County, we’re celebrating autumn and tailgate season. I love this time of year when our Village comes alive with themed scarecrows, pumpkins and corn shocks. Every year Kitchen Kettle Village pays tribute to tailgating season with a two-day food festival filled with delicious and sometimes crazy events. There are plenty of activities for young and old, families and couples alike. See the sports-themed scarecrows throughout the village and vote for your favorite. Savor a tasty sample of homemade tailgate foods at one of our sampling tables, grills or restaurants. Tap your toes to a Dixieland Band. Compete at our Pumpkin Whoopie Pie Filling Contest. Don’t miss the Tailgate Games area on Saturday including a bounce house, tailgate toss, pumpkin bowling & face painting, and the Tailgate Parade at noon featuring the Pequea Valley Band, cheerleaders and more! Don’t miss our 2nd Annual Cornhole Tournament from 9 AM-Noon on Saturday, Sept. 21st. The cost is $25 per team (with a small processing fee) and you receive a fun swag bag and the opportunity to win cash prizes & gift certificates.
