Join us for the 19th Annual York County Pawpaw Festival – an outdoor, family-friendly festival celebrating York County’s beloved pawpaw.

Pawpaws are the largest edible fruit native to the Eastern United States. This delectable fruit grows in abundance right here in the Susquehanna River region.

York County’s Pawpaw Festival will be held from September 23- 24 from 10 a.m.- 3 p.m. at the Horn Farm Center.

At the event, pawpaw fruit (both wild and cultivated varieties) and trees will be available for purchase. Other pawpaw related items will be available including pawpaw cookbooks, books, and t-shirts. In addition, the festival will feature local food vendors, artisans, and community organizations. Fresh produce from the Horn Farm, native plants, jams, jellies, honey, and more will be for sale. Visitors will also enjoy tours of the farm and pawpaw orchard.
