The official mission of the Sherman Valley Heritage Days is to demonstrate and preserve the role of antique farm equipment, and hand-craftsmanship from that time colloquially referred to as “The Good Old Days”. On a more basic level, Heritage Days is a testament a man’s mettle from days long gone. It is the type of festival with lean muscle, tried and true; a tribute to the value of hard work and the simple pleasure’s that come from a life well lived. It isn’t frontier, it isn’t even rural; it is just honest.

There is a nice sized craft show and flea market at the festival representing predominantly rustic and country style wares. There is an Amish quilt auction and a raffle at the end of the weekend with great cash prizes. There is a great variety of contests like the pedal pull, and a high-stakes tournament of horseshoe pitching. Apple Festival also has plenty of delicious country foods, like the old-fashioned soup made in big outdoor boiler-kettles. Be sure to wrap up some scrapple for the ride home, made at the festival. Both Saturday and Sunday morning there is a big country-style breakfast and on Friday and Saturday don’t miss the chicken dinner and pork dinner. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own Ball jars to fill up at the vastly popular apple butter boil.

Sherman Valley Heritage Days is all about antique tractors, gas engines, trucks, and farm equipment. Not only are the tractors, threshers, and binders on exhibit, but visitors can see these farming behemoths in action all weekend long!. The festival hosts not one but two of their self-titled “Old Fashioned Parade”. A festival favorite, the Old Fashioned Parade is promenade of old tractors, buffed and shining, filing off in order through the festival in a cheery glory, much to the spectating fans’ delight. Later in the day is square dancing, and storytelling of traditional Pennsylvania folk tales. Through the weekend there is a frontiersmen and Civil War encampment where re-enactors are posted for the duration.

Admission cost is nominal and parking is free.
