This year's 35th Annual Festival will offer a whoopie pie filling contest; pumpking bowling; music ranging from Dixieland to 50's; cooking and quilting demonstrations; and annual scarecrow competition.

Kitchen Kettle Village is ready to let the games begin as it preserves this year's harvest and honors the fall tailgating season with the Seven Sweets & Sours Festival on Friday, September 18 and Saturday, September 19, 2009 from 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. This year's festival, sponsored by WAWA, takes on a tailgating twist as "fans" have the opportunity to come dressed in their favorite team apparel while enjoying free contests, demonstrations and entertainment.

The huge tailgating celebration includes the popular Whoopie Pie Filling Contest where volunteers from the audience race to see who can assemble and package their whoopie pies the fastest; pumpkin bowling; music ranging from 50's to Dixieland; quilting demonstrations; and an old-fashioned Cider Press display. Guests of all ages are encouraged to come out and vote for their favorite collegiate or sports themed scarecrows that are displayed throughout the Village at our Annual Scarecrow Competition. The Festival will also feature cooking demonstrations with recipe tips, pumpkin centerpiece making, balloon sculpture, a tailgate concession area and much more.
