Kutztown Folk Festival Returns July 1-9
The Kutztown Folk Festival, ranked the No. 2 cultural festival in the nation by USA Today readers, returns in-person this summer July 1-9 at the Kutztown Fairgrounds. Tickets are available online.
High pressure directly over Pennsylvania will bring finally a day without risk for showers, but Canadian wildfire smoke will be our new issue once again. Fair, hazy skies, with high temperatures around 83. Dew point levels will noticeably lower and more comfortable than earlier this week.
