As in previous years, West Main Street will be closed for eight blocks to create the massive street fair of 150 vendors, a great variety of food, and three stages of music performances.
The history of this event goes back nearly a century to Annville Days at Hershey Park when members of the community would travel by train and trolley to the Park for a day of picnicking, rides, swimming and other sports. These days, HOAD retains the focus on community in Annville with the celebration occurring right in the middle of town.
Local residents enjoy visiting with their neighbors, previous residents who come back for the event and visitors from nearby communities. Vendors, including local retailers and restaurants will display a variety of products, food and drink for sale. Many local non-profits also have booths to share information about their work and to fundraise through selling food and drink.
There will be a historic walking tours of Main Street, stopping by the many limestone and log structures constructed in Annville in the 1700’s and early 1800’s. On Main street there will also be reenactors showing some of the processes involved in home construction in the 1700’s, including an iron smith. Guided and self-guided tour booklets of the National Historic District will be available at the Friends of Old Annville Information Booth.
This year’s free musical offerings will include eleven different acts representing a variety of musical styles at three different locations. Tapping Annville and Lebanon County talent, the program includes performances by the Washington Band, the Quittapahilla Highlanders, Mockingbird, Life After Work and Nearly York (a featured group from the Annville Battle of the Bands) at the Main Stage. Matt Miskie , Jim Rule, Keith n’ Sonya Acoustic Roadshow, and Abigail’s Garden Celtic/Bluegrass will perform at the Rotunda Stage. Check the Friend of Old Annville website for specific times of each performance.

We hope to see you all in August!
