Berks Country Fest is a month-long festival each June celebrating the Americana heritage of the Reading and Berks County area, a region that is rich in Americana culture, music, arts and outdoor recreation. The festival is anchored by its flagship music series, the Pretzel City Concert Series, made up of concerts utilizing Berks County venues.
With events ranging from intimate showcases to festival-type atmospheres to shows with GRAMMY Award-winning performers, the Pretzel City Concert Series offers something for everyone.
Berks Country Fest also ties into what’s happening in the community by partnering with local events to create one massive celebration in the month of June. Reading & Berks County, now officially coined Pennsylvania’s Americana Region by the Greater Reading Convention & Visitor’s Bureau, highlights events that assist in preserving our Americana culture. These events are put together by local community organizations that partner with Berks Country Fest and greatly enhance the fest’s Americana flavor. Events include local tours, concerts, festivals, outdoor recreation, dining experiences, concerts, cultural education and more! There are events that are free of charge, and events where tickets must be purchased for entry.
Berks Country Fest takes place every June and is Reading and Berks County’s official kickoff to summer fun! Come check it out!
