One of the summer’s best fests is just around the corner.

The 23rd annual Pennsylvania Dutch Festival lands at Reading Terminal Market on August 9, for three whole days of delicious fresh food, live bluegrass music, a fun petting zoo, buggy rides, handmade crafts and much more.

The first two days, August 9 and 10, the festival takes over the market’s Center Court indoors; on August 11, the fun moves outside for a giant country-style block party on Arch Street.

We’ll have a fleshed-out guide to the fest next week, but for now be sure to mark your calendar.
