What’s New in Lancaster

Travelers have lots of fresh reasons to visit Lancaster County

Lancaster County has always been known as a destination where you can create new memories based on fresh experiences. Check out the latest offerings we have in store for you in 2024!

  • Take some time to explore our Craft & Cork Trail of the area’s breweries, vineyards, & distilleries, and then stay tuned throughout the year for upcoming trails dedicated to Farm Adventure, Wheels & Waterways, and Sweet & Salty.

  • Sight & Sound Theatres® debuts its original production of “Daniel” in mid-March, where faith-filled hope triumphs over every adversity, from a fiery furnace and to the infamous den of lions.

  • The best professional female golfers in the world return to Lancaster Country Club in late May for the U.S. Women’s Open – a well-deserved follow-up to the tournament’s last, record-breaking visit in 2015.

  • The beloved Hershey Farm Restaurant is also slated to return in May, following a complete rebuild that features a central lobby with retail & bakery, a 300-seat smorgasbord space, and a section that connects to the hotel and offers a 100-seat family-style dining area & 50-seat café.

  • Equally worth celebrating this year is the 95th anniversary of Miller’s Smorgasbord – the oldest one in the county!

  • Lancaster City has some fun new offerings in 2024, including the first full year of the Lancaster Electric Bicycle Tour from Unique Lancaster Experiences, which incorporates four historical parts of the city, as well as Passerine – an all-day cafe, restaurant, & bottle shop that celebrates the innovative producers and fresh produce from Lancaster and the surrounding region.

  • Plus the February world-premiere of “Off the Yellow Brick Road” at Prima Theatre in the city – an original production that updates Dorothy & friends’ adventure for the digital age, and features a 4D sensory experience in the round and top-line talent in set design, choreography, and musical direction.

  • Another great way to see the county on two wheels is via Lititz Bikeworks’ bike share program on the Warwick-Ephrata Rail Trail, which now features specialized roll bikes and offers a self-guided, add-on tour that incorporates two covered bridges and a market.

  • Landis Valley Village & Farm Museum has reopened its 1815 Jacob Landis Farmhouse for self-guided tours, and the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania recently unveiled the 1838 “Rocket” – the oldest surviving Reading Railroad steam locomotive, for display in its Rolling Stock Hall.

  • If you like your history with a twist, check out one or more of the Strasburg Rail Road’s fresh and inventive events, like Whiskey on the Rails, the Bonnie & Clyde Experience, Escape Room challenges, or Le Train Cabaret.

  • Eden Resort & Suites is welcoming guests to the first full year of its new Bistro 2two2 dining experience AND a second pool & cabanas rentals.

  • Lancaster County also boasts two great new sites for events: the Barn at Paradise Station in Ronks, a beautifully-restored and technologically-enhanced 19th century Pennsylvania Bank Barn, and the finishing touches of the 4,500-square-foot Imperial Terrace, which completes the Imperial Event Center at the Holiday Inn Lancaster in the city.
