2nd Annual Cabbage Festival Coming to Weatherly This Fall
 
 
The 2nd Annual Cabbage Festival in Pennsylvania is coming to Weatherly on October 13, 2018. The festival will run from 11 am – 6 p.m. and include family friendly activities including a tractor show, music, food, food contests, cabbage contests, games, and you guessed it… a lot of cabbage! New this year will be an expanded kids section with tons of activities for the entire family! Last year’s inaugural event was recognized by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, State Rep. Doyle Heffley, Carbon County Commissioners Wayne Nothstein, Tom Gerhard and William O’Gurek as well as Weatherly’s Mayor and Borough Council for being the first cabbage festival in the state of Pennsylvania.

This FREE event is brought to you by a group of volunteers from the borough of Weatherly along with the Carbon Chamber & Economic Development Corporation. The event would not be possible without the support of our sponsors; The Borough of Weatherly, Mayor Tom Connors, Sernak Farms in Weatherly, Les Sincavage Graphic Services, The Weatherly Hill Climb Association, Affordable Dumpsters, and Zimmerman’s Dairy.
 
Last year’s event was a sell out success and many of the vendors will be returning this year with more food and offerings so everyone will get a delicious bite or two! “The Cabbage Festival was bigger and better than I could have ever dreamed of.” said Carbon County Commissioner Tom Gerhard.  “It was first class from start to finish.”
 
The day’s events are still in the planning stages and will be announced later this year.
 
Anyone wishing to get involved in the planning is invited to join the committee meeting on Tuesday, May 29 at 6 p.m. at the Weatherly Borough, Council Chambers.  Vendor and sponsorship applications will also be available at that time.
