This is Pennsylvania Dutch Country, which is about an hour and thirty minutes if you’re driving from Philadelphia, and less by train. Downtown Lancaster offers plenty of opportunities for shopping and dining, or you can tour the nearby countryside. For farm fresh flavor, Lancaster Central Market is open Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. The market offers everything from artisan bread, coffee, and tea to farm produce and flowers. There are also numerous shops, cafés, galleries, and more to enjoy while you’re in town.

Enjoy Yourself

The most important part of the whole experience! Remember, you’re here to have fun, learn, and make new friends. Be friendly, introduce yourself, compliment someone’s sweater—you never know who you’ll meet, from your favorite designer to a new lifelong friend.

Remember, there’s no wrong way to enjoy an event like Maker Festivals. I can’t wait to see you there! I’ll be the one broadly grinning with multiple totes of yarn, beads, and fabric in my arms . . . oh wait, that won’t narrow it down at all. But I will be the one introducing myself as the Interweave digital editor and maybe asking if I can take your picture for social media. And I’ll be so, so excited to meet you, a fellow maker.
