65th Kutztown Folk Festival set to get underway Saturday

KUTZTOWN, Pa. - This year, there's even more time to enjoy the music, crafts, food and "lemon drinka" at the Kutztown Folk Festival.

The festival features a new logo and new hours. The festival will run from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m., giving guests two extra hours each evening.

The new director, Steve Sharadin, has been part of the festival for more than 30 years. He said the new hours could attract a whole new crowd.

"The extra driving force really was in response to our visitors. So many folks we heard, 'I can't get to the festival. I've worked all day,'" Sharadin said. This is the opportunity now, and we really hope to open the festival to a whole new group of folks.

The festival will begin Saturday and continue until July 6 at the Kutztown Fairgrounds.
