Secret Gardens of Strasburg Tour

Strasburg, PA | website | Strasburg, false 17579 event website

Secret Gardens of Strasburg Tour on Sat. June 23rd from 9am-4pm and Sun. June 24th from 1pm-4pm. The bi-annual Secret Gardens of Strasburg tour is one of our biggest fund raisers. However, we will need gardens to put on display, so, if you want to show-off your “pride and joy” and help the society, volunteer your garden--we need 8 to 10 to have a really special offering. In addition, for all those folks who have more than enough perennials and want to get rid of their excess, please consider giving those to the SHS for sale or as volunteer’s gifts during the tour.

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)

Then Sings My Soul: Beloved Hymns & Songs inspired by the ministry of Billy Graham

The Red Caboose Motel & Restaurtant | website | Ronks, false 17572 event website

Sunday, August 19 | 3PM & 7PM

Featuring 4 professional vocalists from the Lancaster, Pennsylvania area, "Then Sings My Soul" highlights inspiring hymns of faith and devotion often sung at Billy Graham's famous Crusades. With the recent passing of Dr. Graham in February of this year, "Then Sings My Soul" highlights historical moments in Reverend Graham's ministry and includes a look at the history behind some of the most famous hymns - many of which were written as a result of tragic and trying circumstances. Featuring favorites such as In the Garden, It is Well with My Soul, Every Time I Feel the Spirit and Just As I Am, we hope to spread joy and encouragement amidst today's often broken world. We'll even have an old-fashioned hymn sing, just like in the "good old days"!

A free-will offering will be taken during the performance and will be donated to The Billy Graham Library Endowment in memory of Dr. Graham.
