Published: 05/20/2015

Artisanship large and small is going strong across York County with great products crafted at every turn, and there's no better time to come and experience the captivating wonder of American creativity and ingenuity on display in York than the four-day Made In America Tours Event June 17-20.

You're invited behind the scenes to see firsthand how they make your favorite mouth-watering snacks at Martin's Potato Chips in Thomasville and Snyder's of Hanover, Utz Quality Foods and Revonah Pretzel in Hanover.

Then finish your snack excursions with a new twist for this year at York City Pretzel Company, putting you right in the heart of historic and happening Downtown York for the evening.

You'll also see not only how it's made this year but how it's distributed by Brewery Products.

Experience an expanded lineup of wineries taking you from grape to glass along beautiful drives through the York County countryside as you visit each location.

For dessert, meet the cows producing the milk that goes into the delicious ice cream you'll savor at Perrydell Farm. 

So many more visitor favorites are on tap in 2015 such as Bluett Bros. Violins, Sunrise Soap Company, Walk-Le Holsteins, York County Solid Waste Authority, Harley-Davidson Motor Company, Vehicle Operations ... the list goes on!

Made In America is also when you can watch it being made - and then take it home! York County features outlet shopping right at the factories making your favorite products, as well as great farmers markets, antique stores and specialty shops.

And Shoppe American Made on the tour lineup has hundreds of items for you to purchase from more than 80 local vendors and U.S. manufacturers.
