With more than 2,500 cars, Lehigh Valley’s Das Awkscht Fescht is one of the country’s largest antique and classic car shows held at Macungie Memorial Park each summer. Celebrating more than 50 years, it has become a family tradition for all ages offering three fun-packed days in the great outdoors.

Each year the festival celebrates with live music, children’s entertainment and activities, artisans, three toy shows, and a 30-minute fireworks show, Saturday. It’s fun for the whole family! The children’s area will entertain the little ones for hours with activities, such as face painting, as well as entertainment, including jugglers, magicians and clowns. Don’t miss indoor & outdoor  in conjunction with Das Awkscht Fescht.

Visitors won’t go hungry with Pennsylvania Dutch favorites such as funnel cakes, shoofly pie, and hot dogs with sauerkraut, in addition to regular festival fare such as waffles and ice cream, chicken wraps, pierogies, and baked goods are available.

On Sunday, the festival holds a salute to America’s veterans, including discounted entrance tickets for men and women who show military or veterans identification.
