Out and About
Meyersdale is home to the Pennsylvania Maple Festival. The annual event is the longest running maple festival in the State and features maple sugar demonstrations, arts and crafts, live music, and, of course, the famous Meyersdale Lions pancakes with 100% pure Somerset County maple syrup! Visit the Maple Manor, taste spotza, boiled down maple syrup over crushed ice (a sweet treat early settlers learned from Native Americans) or book tickets for a lively production The Legend of the Magic Water. Steeped in festival traditions, the play has something for everyone - from an Indian attack to a hoedown, a simple hymn to classic opera. Festival Park is opened April 4-5 and April 10-12.
