The first week of April brings Philly Wine Week, with wine tastings and events sprinkled all around the city. Moving right along to April 14, we’ve got the Manayunk StrEAT Food Festival, when 50 of the state’s top food trucks and vendors come together along historic Main Street. On April 28, don’t miss Flavors of the Avenue, a food festival spread across five city blocks, including craft beer and live music.
Or, if you happen to wander farther west across the state, on April 3-7 the borough of Meyersdale hosts the bulk of the Pennsylvania Maple Festival, as it has for more than 70 years. There’s a Grand Parade on April 6, plus a Maple Run 5k, a Maple Queen Pageant, plus an ongoing Annual Quilt Show (tickets start at $2). And, of course, there is an iconic pancake shack. Come to Pennsylvania hungry, basically.
