After a 2 year hiatus, this beloved all-ages event returns with live entertainment, and more!

By Friends of Glen Rock Borough May 25, 2022

The 6th annual Glen Rock Arts & Brew Fest is taking place on June 4th in the historic Borough of Glen Rock, PA. The mission of the Glen Rock Arts & Brew Fest is to showcase local and regional businesses and artisans in a fun-filled, Borough-wide, all-ages festival designed to encourage community connectivity, and promote economic and cultural growth. This event is rain or shine, open to all ages and general admission is free to the public. 

The main festival events will run from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm and will feature over 60 vendors, entertainers, and activities located all around downtown Glen Rock. The Main Stage will be set up in Ruins Hall and will feature music all day. A dedicated Kids’ Zone will be located in the Enterprise parking lot along Water St and will feature free family fun activities such as face painting, interactive live demos, and classes, as well as a variety of crafts and games from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. 

The Northern Central railway will also be onsite offering mini-excursions from Glen Rock to New Freedom and back throughout the day for only $12! This is the third year the NCR has been able to partner with the Arts & Brew Fest. If you ever wanted to ride the train, this is an excellent opportunity to get an introductory feel for what the Northern Central Railway has to offer with their longer excursions year-round! Tickets can be purchased in advance online here or at the NCR booth during the festival. 

Arts & Craft vendor booths will be located in front of the Arthur P. Hufnagel Public Library and will continue alongside the York County Heritage Rail Trail, over to Water Street, and into the areas around Ruins Hall. Food will be located in the Glen Rock EMS parking lot with tables and chairs for folks to relax, and eat, while they take a break from the day’s many activities.  

The Brew portion of the event is presented by Ruins Hall and Crocodile Dog Marketing with beer tastings happening from 11:00 pm to 5:00 pm in designated areas only. Proper identification will be required to purchase or consume alcohol. Guests over 21 years of age wishing to participate in the Brew portion of the event can purchase tickets for beer tastings in advance online here. On-site, tickets for beer tasting will be available in the Ruins Hall area only. 

Volunteer help is still needed for set up, tear down, parking, general information, and vendor assistance on the day of the event. Volunteers will receive water, snacks and a Glen Rock Arts & Brew Fest t-shirt. Volunteers can sign up here.
