Peddler’s Village, knowing that area families may be hearing the tick-tick-tick of Summer 2022 passing by, has packed its calendar with plenty of opportunities to maximize the warm weather.
Best, all this opportunity kicks off almost immediately and runs well into August.
Red, White & Blue BBQ Bash
For example, the Red, White, & Blue BBQ Bash runs July 2–4.
It’s an all-American celebration and picnic that checks all the boxes: classic barbecue available for purchase and retro-style games like a three-legged race and a watermelon-eating contest.
Accompanying tunes to all this merriment is courtesy of the Galena Brass Band, which will perform daily.
On July 2, they’ll be augmented by the sounds of Martin and Kelly, an up-and-coming country group that has played with Willie Nelson, Alabama, and Brad Paisley. And on July 4, the Cheddar Boys (a local favorite folk group) will take over when the scheduled patriotic brass band sits out for a well-earned break.
Bluegrass & Blueberries
July 9–10 kicks off a weekend of pickin’-related events — as in both diving into one of summer’s most treasured fruits and enjoying some down-home country music.
Both events are free, featuring live entertainment and concerts, pay-as-you-go outdoor food and drinks, and family activities. Everything takes place against the backdrop of the village’s stunning sand sculptures, created by four world-renowned master sand sculpting teams.
Blueberries & Bluegrass brings on a stream of talented performers:
- The Birdhouse Borderline
- Flint Hill Express
- Martin and Kelly
- Station Hill Bluegrass
- The Birdhouse Center for the Arts, featuring Justin & Bronwyn
Moving forward through its ensuing weekends, the summery celebration is chock-full of entertainers, family activities (bubble shows, kids’ crafts, etc.), and food trucks.
And speaking of food, the event’s signature ingredient — blueberries — will be omnipresent in Lahaska. Treats, drinks, butters, restaurant specials, and even merch will highlight the local treasure.
The month of July wraps up with a beer dinner on the 28th, held in conjunction with the Free Will Brewing Co., and a Food Truck Thursday the same date.
Lest anyone think that August will be devoid of any special programming, fear not. Its calendar already shows:
- National Night Out, in partnership with the Buckingham Township Police Department (Aug. 2)
- Peach Month, including a Sidewalk Sale (Aug. 6–7)
- A Food Truck Thursday encore (Aug. 25)
