In an homage to the memorable Halloween parades in Kutztown’s past, the bicentennial parade will be held in the evening, starting at 7pm. And like other parades, it will form at the Kutztown Fairground and Kutztown University (College Boulevard), then march down Main Street and end at the Kutztown Park. The judges’ stand will be located near the intersection of Main and Willow Streets, but great views can be had all along Main Street. There will also be food vendors lined along the parade route and in the Kutztown Park. The rain date is Sunday, August 2 at 1:00pm.
When the parade is over, make your way to the Kutztown Fire Company, 310 Noble Street, where the Kutztown Hobos and the fire company are co-hosting the after-parade party with Kutztown’s own Frog Holler and very special guest Hezekiah Jones. Admission is $15 and INCLUDES Domestic Beer!
“Godfrey Daniels is a premier live music listening room on the south side of Bethlehem, Pa serving up some of the finest folk and roots related acts since 1976. Godfrey’s has earned a reputation as one of the finest folk music venues in the country, and is supported by nearly 300 members and 50 volunteers. Over the years, Godfrey’s has grown from a little-known haven for lovers of live folk music* to an internationally acclaimed club on the “folk circuit.””
On Saturday July 18, 2015, Frog Holler returns for its annual show to close the season at Godfrey’s before the Musikfest break/summer hiatus. (Godfrey’s returns in September for it’s 40th anniversary season!) It’s one of our favorite shows, and a must venue/room to experience Frog Holler or any band or performer. Godfrey’s provides a “rich experience by creating an intimate link among the musicians, audience members, and volunteers”

November 2, 1995: Townes Van Zant/Guy Clark at Godfrey Daniels. I sat front row center, three rows back, with the greatest living singer/songwriter just a few feet away. He played 9 songs in the first show, 14 in the second. Both Townes and Guy may not have been at the top of their game, they were both seen at The Funhouse before the show, but it matters little to my memory of the night, I had seen Townes Van Zant and i was sitting so close! (Sidebar to this story: The show was also attended by the members of Son Volt, who i had seen in Philly the night before, (Jay Farrar documents his experience of the same night in his book) and members of Marah, who who i...
