Made in America Event

 

Explore York County during Made In America Days held annually in June.

  Made In America Photos

 

Find out why York County, PA, is known as the Factory Tour Capital of the World® when the 19th Annual Made in America Tours Event returns June 14-17.

This annual celebration of manufacturing ingenuity offers exclusive, behind-the-scenes looks at the making of your favorite products. You'll step onto expansive production floors and into visitor-friendly artisan shops for a first-hand look at the American craftsmanship that makes York County so special.

You're invited to an official kickoff celebration at 9 a.m., Wednesday, June 14, at Brewery Products, 1017 N. Sherman St., in York. One of the most popular tour locations, Brewery Products will also be stabling the iconic Budweiser Clydesdales the same week as the Made in America Tours Event.

Attendees will also be entered to win a special gift basket from the York County Convention & Visitors Bureau!

This year's tour lineup features 27 exciting locations, including many of the most popular factory tours that visitors have come to love. Whether it's watching legendary Harley-Davidson motorcycles roar to life, snacking on fresh-made snacks at Martin's Potato Chips or seeing true artisans at work at Bluett Bros. Violins and George's Furniture, there's a behind-the-scenes experience for everyone.

Plus, there are new locations just waiting to be explored!

The Made in America Tours Event is fun for the entire family. There is no overall admission charge, but a few of the sites do charge nominal fees to help offset operating costs.

With so much to see, you'll want to stay a while. Enjoy the unbeatable combination of FREE factory tours, engaging attractions, affordable lodging rates, and great dining and shopping that York County offers.

"We did a factory tour vacation and we loved it.
The price was great because just about every tour was free. Martin's Potato Chips was the highlight
of the trip. We can't wait to come back to do some of the things we couldn't fit in this trip."
