YORK, PA- Artisanship large and small is going strong across York County, PA, 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.

From motorcycles to musical instruments and from soap to snacks, visitors will experience it all in the Factory Tour Capital of the World.

Guests this year are invited behind the scenes to see firsthand how they make America's favorite mouth-watering snacks at Martin's Potato Chips in Thomasville and Snyder's of Hanover Factory Store, Utz Quality Foods and Revonah Pretzel LLC in Hanover. And this year, snack excursions include a new twist at York City Pretzel Company in Downtown York.

Visitors will also learn not only how it's made this year but how it's distributed by Brewery Products Company, see assembly, metalworking and wood shop operations at Oakworks Inc., a manufacturer of medical positioning equipment, and enjoy an expanded lineup of wineries taking guests from grape to glass.

So many favorites also return in 2015 such as Bluett Bros. Violins, Sunrise Soap Company, York County Solid Waste Authority and Harley-Davidson Motor Company, Vehicle Operations.
