The Rhubarb Festival is almost here!
Each year our annual two-day food festival happens the third Friday & Saturday in May – this year it’s Friday, May 19th & Saturday, May 20th.
If you have never been, you’re missing out on some awesome head gear (check out the fascinators we’ve made), the World’s Only Rhubarb Race Car Derby (yes, little dragsters made from rhubarb & raced on a real track) or all the delicious foods that we serve at the festival. New to our Rollicking Rhubarb Stroll (too small to be called a parade) this year, we will have a brand new float for our Rhubarb Royalty. The parade will also be featuring musicians, costumed characters, Kitchen Kettle’s own pink ladies, and new this year the “Barbettes” (our little Pink Ladies).

Rhubarb Festival is a breath of spring that colors the Village in magenta and green. Employees compete for the prestigious title of Rhubarb King & Queen, local bakers vie for best of show in the “Best Rhubarb Dessert in Lancaster County” baking contest benefiting the Lancaster Farmland Trust…but most of all it is an opportunity for employees and guests alike to celebrate spring in Lancaster County.
