The annual Pennsylvania State Flaming Foliage Festival will celebrate its 67th anniversary this year, having started in 1949 in Renovo.


The festival is always held on the second full weekend of October so this year, 2015, will see the festivities running from October 9th through the 11th.

Events and activities include the Parade of Queens through the town, talent shows, dances and other social activities, scores of vendors offering a huge assortment of crafts, wares, services, and food. The whole thing is topped off by the crowning of "Miss Flaming Foliage" who is chosen from the dozens of young women representing high schools from around the Central Pennsylvania area.

Renovo is about mid-way on the scenic "Bucktail Trail", Route 120 which winds through the lush and verdant forests of the "Pennsylvania Wilds" and the West Branch of the Susquehanna River from Lock Haven to Emporium.

Hi Patricia,
It's always fun to connect with you once a year as it brings back so many wonderful warm memories of the time I spent with loving friends in Altoona and the surrounding area years ago.

I did attend the Flaming Foliage Festival in Renovo last year which I enjoyed for the festivities as well as the chance to spend time in such a beautiful, natural, and still largely unspoiled area. The colors were beautiful as we drove across Interstate 80 from New York to Clinton County and the weather was perfect. I'm not sure about whether I can make it this year but there is a possibility.

We're almost out of July and into August so Fall is just over the horizon. Enjoy my home state of PA and thanks for facilitating this beautiful site.
