The Summer Kitchen

The summer kitchen display at the Kutztown Folk Festival is always a popular exhibit to visit. Separate from the farm house, cooking in the summer kitchen helped to keep the farm house cool during those hot summer nights.

Good old fashioned home cooking! Any one for a piece of pie?

These brightly colored signs can be found all around the festival with information about the folklore and history of the Pennsylvania Dutch. The festival is ongoing July 2nd through July 10th, 2016. Admission is $12.00/person, but you can print a coupon for $2.00 off and bring it to the admission gate. Parking is free.

We hope to see you there!

I have always love the concept of having the kitchen separate from the house. The pie looks just delicious!

What a great old memory. If it's too hot in the kitchen - have a separate one (back in the day)!
