On Stage

Broadway-caliber performances come alive in to South Central PA through Sight & Sound Theatres®, known for its grand and immersive productions set on a 300-foot panoramic stage. This year’s debut of “David,” premiering in March, brings the Bible’s most legendary king to life with original songs and choreography and impressive special effects.

Lancaster’s own Magic & Wonder Theater features the illusions of Brett A. Myers, who recently won the “Oscar of Magic”—the Merlin Award—for the 2021 Best Magic & Variety Show. In addition to a new magic show this year, the theater is also unveiling “Jukebox Jive,” a variety show full of music, comedy, dance, juggling, and more.


You won’t want to miss the latest tour from the Amish Farm & House. During “Sunset Picnic on an Amish Farm,” guests travel through the beautiful countryside to enjoy an evening of food, craft, and conversation with an Amish family. Another great way to see our farmlands is with Strasburg Scooters' Scootin’ For Scoops ice cream tour at their Bird-in-Hand location. Delish! Or explore on your own by renting one of their electric bikes.

Did you know you can explore Lancaster County by water as well? Join the Susquehanna National Heritage Area for a River Discovery Boat Tour aboard their new “Chief Uncas,” an electric boat from 1912. You’ll discover the natural and cultural history of our western border—the mighty Susquehannah. Or check out the new pre-planned kayaking tours offered by kayakLanCo. They create the route and bring the gear; you have the adventure! There’s also historic Sickman’s Mill along the banks of Pequea Creek and its return of tubing, entertainment, and good food and drink.

Your kids will squeal at the latest thrill at Cherry Crest Adventure Farm: the six-lane Freedom Slide, with a nearly 200-foot-long run—the farm’s tallest, widest, fastest slide yet.

Foodie Fun

You’ll also find tempting fare and libations at the Southern Market, a newly redesigned food hall and bar in the city showcasing Lancaster’s diverse culinary talent. Find Latin cuisine, pho, sushi, cupcakes and more!

You can also check out several new restaurants and cafes such as La Mattina Caffe, Proof, and Queen Street Bistro.

Speaking of good food and great times, two favorite local events continue their inventive ways this for another year: The Lititz Fire & Ice festival will add new features to its schedule (February 18-27), and Lancaster County Restaurant Week (held in the fall) adds new venues to help benefit the Lancaster Farmland Trust.
