Das Awkscht Fescht
With more than 2,500 cars, Lehigh Valley’s Das Awkscht Fescht is one of the country's largest antique and classic car shows held at Macungie Memorial Park each summer. Celebrating more than 50 years, it has become a family tradition for all ages offering three fun-packed days in the great outdoors.
Each year the festival celebrates with live music, children's entertainment and activities, artisans, three toy shows and a 30-minute fireworks show, Saturday. It's fun for the whole family! The children's area will entertain the little ones for hours with activities, such as face painting, as well as entertainment, including jugglers, magicians and clowns.
Three locations for the toy shows will give you lots to look at. An indoor show on Saturday for the most expensive collectible toys is at Eyer Middle School, Macungie, with doors opening at 8 a.m. A shuttle runs to and from the festival grounds and the school. The outdoor "Toy Town" can be found in the parking lots of Shoemaker and Macungie elementary schools, which are behind Eyer. The outdoor show runs Friday and Saturday and is more of a flea market for toys. A shuttle will run to and from the park on Saturday.
Visitors won’t go hungry with Pennsylvania Dutch favorites such as funnel cakes, shoofly pie and hot dogs with sauerkraut, in addition to regular festival fare such as waffles and ice cream, chicken wraps, pierogies and baked goods are available.
On Sunday, the festival holds a salute to America's veterans, including discounted entrance tickets for men and women who show military or veterans identification.
Admission is $9 for adults and FREE for children age 15 & under.
