West Side Story

Ephrata Performing Arts Center | website | Ephrata, false 17522 event website

West Side Story is an epic fan-favorite musical written by Arthur Laurents with music by Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and concept and choreography by Jerome Robbins. Teen rival gangs, the Jets and the Sharks, face more than turf wars in 1950s New York. They must confront the racism between whites and Puerto Ricans that tears them – and the city – apart. Based on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, a forbidden romance buds between a boy and girl from the different gangs. Can their colorblind love overcome the racial tensions and mend the feud? The intense choreographed fights, the light comedic slice-of-life, and the heartwarming young love will keep the audience on the edge of their seats and singing into the night.

Retro Fest Rockabilly Weekender and Car Show 2018

The Lancaster Host Resort | website | lancaster, false 17602 event website

Retro Fest was created in 2016 as an event to bring the East Coast rockabilly and vintage community together and to celebrate the uniqueness of its culture.

We work with local organizations, businesses, car clubs and vendors to have a festival

full of music, vintage, classic cars, and numerous other activities.

The term "rockabilly" is used to describe a kind of music that mixes elements of rock and roll, rhythm & blues and country. It has expanded into a category that involves everything included with 1950s style living.


With the 1950s and a bit of 60s and 70s in mind, we hand pick everyone who is involved in our festival to ensure they fit the theme.

Pre 1972 Car Show from 10 to 5. hosted by the Greasers Social Club (Saturday)

Vendors from 10 to 6. vintage 1950s/60s and retro related items (Saturday)
Pin Up Contest (Saturday)
Hair/Make Up Appointments by Nikki Doll (Saturday)
Mid Century Kitchenwares seminar by SK Vintage (Saturday)
