Cancellation Notice for BARK PEELERS’ FESTIVAL 2020

In early May, the members of the Board of Directors of the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum Associates (PALMA) met to discuss the feasibility of holding our signature yearly event, Bark Peelers’ Festival, this summer on July 4 & 5, 2020. The festival is our biggest event of the year, and typically draws a crowd of 2,000 to 3,000 people to the museum. Given the advised restrictions on large gatherings that will likely still be in-place this summer, the PALMA Board of Directors has decided to cancel Bark Peelers’ Festival 2020 out of concerns for public safety and COVID-19 mitigation efforts. We are saddened by the idea of not being able to see all of the wonderful presenters, vendors, volunteers and guests who typically attend the festival, but we are resolved to do all we can to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We hope our festival “community” will return to join us for next year’s Bark Peelers’ Festival, to be held on July 3 & 4, 2021.

Thank you for your continuing support of the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum!
