In the heart of Lancaster County, they've been celebrating rhubarb for over 30 years. This time of year, Kitchen Kettle Village comes alive with the sweet aroma of rhubarb jam bubbling in the kettles. Rhubarb is the harbinger of spring in Pennsylvania Dutch Country, and every year Kitchen Kettle Village pays tribute with a two-day food festival filled with delicious, and sometimes zany events.
There are plenty of activities for young and old, families and couples alike. See the fastest rhubarb cars in the world’s only rhubarb race-car derby. Savor the tastiest homemade rhubarb desserts at our Best Rhubarb Dessert baking contest. Dance down Pepper Lane to our Rhubarb Stroll (mini parade) featuring costumed characters, musicians, pink ladies and more. Or try your hand in our Rhubarb Whoopie Pie Filling Contest.
