Festival on the Ridge

Festival on the Ridge

1st weekend in June
Downtown Harrisburg
870.931.2790

The perfect way to kick off summer vacation is in downtown Harrisburg. Held the first Saturday in June, the Festival on the Ridge has everything needed for a day full of fun activities. The day begins with the annual 5K run. If running is not on the agenda, then head down to the country breakfast. When the race is over and the breakfast table cleared, it’s time to show off your best horseshoe tossing technique in the popular Horseshoe Tournament. Does the nostalgia of a simpler time appeal to you? What better way to relive old memories and make new ones than with an old-fashioned Soap Box Derby! Hints of the past give way to live action extreme sports as the BMX Stunt Team shows off daring feats of skill. Speaking of skill, if you don’t know the proper way to eat a mudbug, then the Crawfish Eating Contest is a must-see. Throughout the day, live music sets the tone for summer fun. For more information, contact the Harrisburg Area Chamber of Commerce at 870.931.2790.
