When planning your next meeting or event, why not incorporate one of the many festivals or special events that are held locally? Lehigh Valley is home to plenty of ways to celebrate any season.

In September each year, you'll find Celtic Classic. Held in Bethlehem, this event is the largest Celtic festival in North America. Enjoy live music, plenty of food, and of course, the U.S. Highland Game Championships.

Prost! Celebrate the German way during Yuengling Oktoberfest. Typically held the first two weekends of October at the SteelStacks™ campus, this event features bar skills challenges, music, food, and much more.

Just after Thanksgiving, Christkindlmarkt rolls into town. Ranked as one of the top holiday markets by Travel + Leisure, this event gives visitors the chance to check off their holiday gift list in a unique shopping experience. Visit the market Thursdays - Sundays in November and December. Be sure to check the website for exact dates and times.

And, if your event brings you to the Christmas City during the holiday season, be sure to stroll through the shops of Christmas City Village. This outdoor market is held throughout downtown Bethlehem, with huts along Main Street and in the Sun Inn Courtyard.

Ring in the New Year at PEEPS Fest, where a giant PEEP is dropped to celebrate the end of a year and the start of a new one. This fun, family-friendly celebration takes place annually at the SteelStacks™ campus of ArtsQuest.
