Rescheduled Opportunity to Come!

Sixteen years in the making and we have never had to cancel our show due to safety considerations - but this year was, unfortunately, different!  Considering the safety of our vendors and our patrons was paramount in making this very difficult decision as we prepared to welcome guests. 


However, the sun is shining brightly and we are planning opportunities to bring our dedicated and weather-worthy vendors who showed up on Saturday, May 7th, the chance to present their fine art and artisan wares to the community.

Stay tuned to our site and social media to find out when and where and plan for Artfest Revisited!

SPECIAL PRESENTATION

HANG TOUGH:

The World War II Letters of Major Dick Winters


A book by Erik Dorr & Jared Frederick

 

 A Presentation by Historian Jared Frederick on Thursday, June 2, 2022   5 p.m. 

 

Major Dick Winters of the 101st Airborne gained international acclaim when the tale of he and his men were depicted in the celebrated book and miniseries Band of Brothers. Hang Tough, by Erik Dorr and Jared Frederick, offers additional context to this officer who later called Hershey his home. By examining wartime letters, this engaging presentation will offer a unique blend of Winters's personal wit, leadership ethics, and broader observations of a world at war. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session and a book signing.

Our summer music series on the patio, Jazz at the Barnyard, will kickoff the summer season and continue the first Friday of every month, June through September, 7-10 p.m.

Featuring all-local sonic sensations, including

Little Brother Band

and Soul House,

it’s a fantastic way to wrap the week and tip your glass to say cheers to the sunset, in the historic setting of

Pinehurst Barn.

We’re the only gig in town offering jazz and a great patio season experience, so come and celebrate with us.


BYOB and BYO chair!

Jazz at the Barnyard Special Event:  Celebrate the Fourth a little early on the First!

Kick off a special Fourth of July holiday weekend with an event to help build Hershey's Courtyard of Honor, intended to pay tribute to first responders, veterans and eventually, the 25th anniversary of 9/11. Hershey American Legion #386 — in cooperation with Derry Township supervisors — plan to construct a “Heroes Memorial” in downtown Hershey. That area is slated as the “Courtyard of Honor” and will be located next to the Hershey Volunteer Fire Department, and will have a special memorial dedicated to the memory of Michael Horrocks, a 1981 Hershey High graduate who was co-pilot of united Airlines Flight 175 on September 11, 2001.

 That evening’s  event is presented by proud supporter Members 1st Credit Union.
