A committee of the Friends of Old Annville dedicated to 

fostering community spirit in Annville

Who we are

Celebrate! Annville was established in 2023 as a committee of the Friends of Old Annville. We are dedicated to fostering community spirit in Annville. Our priorities are to add holiday decorations to Main Street and to host events that demonstrate tradition and pride for our town.

In December 2023, we continued two Annville beloved traditions: Santa's Arrival at the Allen Theatre & Backstage Cafe and the Tree Lighting. We also hosted a Photos with Santa event at the Annville Train Station and added eight (8) lighted wreathed to the intersection of Routes 422 and 934. Using funds donated by generous sponsors, and money we will continue to raise, we plan to add holiday decorations to the historic district and continue to coordinate events for our community. We hope you'll join us!
