ROCKIN’ Lititz

Lititz, PA has all the charm and quaintness of a Hallmark movie. A main street lined with mom and pop shops, holiday parades, and even a chocolate factory. But perhaps one of the coolest and most unique parts of Lititz is Rock Lititz.

PC: Rock Lititz

So what is Rock Lititz? It’s a one-stop-shop for all things in the live event industry. From design, engineering, manufacturing, rehearsals, they essential create the stages and sets for concerts…and probably for some of your favorite performers.  

PC: Simply Events

In 2012, three Lancaster companies combined forces and went out on a limb buying a farm in Lititz to turn it into a large-scale rock performance campus. The goal of this organization is to have a full concert venue-like space to plan concerts without the added pressure of having spectators. It makes the process of designing stages and rehearsing concerts much more enjoyable and relaxed for performers.

Big names such as Taylor Swift, U2, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Ariana Grande come to visit and work with the crew at Rock Lititz. The Rolling Stones, Mumford and Sons, Usher, Billy Joel, Maroon 5, Justin Timberlake, Nicki Minaj, Bon Jovi, Beyonce… these major stars all have been spotted in our little old town! Many of them comment that they love coming to Lititz because there is no media, no promotional appearances – just a peaceful, quiet place to be creative.

Unfortunately, we never know who is in town until they leave – visitors are kept very hush hush. So, while you aren’t guaranteed to run into Elton John while visiting Lititz, you are welcome to visit the Rock Lititz campus at any time!

It is 96 acres and expanding like crazy. There is a hotel (where the celebrities stay – but you can too!), a magnificent restaurant called Per Diem, a brewery called Fetish, and a flex workspace called Rock Candy.  The performance area is referred to as “The Cube”, and quite literally looks like a huge black box rising from the cornfields.  You could spend a whole day just exploring the grounds. And who knows, maybe you’ll have a celebrity spotting!

Lititz is dubbed America’s coolest small town – Rock Lititz definitely plays a role in that!

An Afternoon at the Polo Fields!

If you’re looking for a relaxing, fun activity to do on a Sunday afternoon this Fall, look no further than a polo match at Forney Fields in Rothsville, PA – minutes from downtown Lititz.  

The Lancaster Polo League has polo matches every Sunday from June through mid-October. Check out their website for more information on their home match schedule.

PC: https://www.lancasterpolo.org/gallery

The gates open at 1 pm and matches begin at 2:30pm. Children under 12 are free! Anyone above 12 is $5. Remember – this is weather permitting! Check the website for weather updates the day of.

Each match has a theme or benefits a special organization. For example, September 5th is accepting donations for our local SPCA. Later in the month, there will be a food truck offered! We know that October is breast cancer awareness month, and the first week of October is benefiting this important cause!

PC: https://www.lancasterpolo.org/gallery

Here’s what you can expect:

Drive through the gates and park anywhere under the trees on the perimeter of the field. Grab some friends, blankets and chairs to sit on. Set up your tailgate and unpack your delicious spread to enjoy before and during this classic game.

Halfway through the game, you will be invited to “divot stomp”, which is an age-old polo tradition! This is when you stomp on the divots in the field, which helps preserve the field and enhances safety for the players (and horses). This is an activity that thrilled my kids when they were little! According to their website, even the Queen of England stomps divots when she attends a match!

So if you want to feel like royalty, or be transferred to the English countryside, visit the Lancaster Polo Club and let us know what you think!

Mt. Gretna ~ A Hidden Oasis

Ready to think about finding your perfect home in Lancaster? If you are curious about homes that are currently on the market, our website is a great spot to start your search!

At the beginning of every summer, my family compiles a list of activities we want to accomplish before the season ends. We get really creative and add things that we’ve never tried (such as OGO Balling – more on that in another post!)  But one activity that is on our summer “to do” list every single year is a visit to Mount Gretna. Now is the perfect time to go!

Mount Gretna is truly one of Central Pennsylvania’s hidden gems. An 18-mile drive from downtown Lancaster will instantly make you feel like you’ve traveled hours away. It’s always cooler in temperature, completely shaded by tree canopies overhead, and offers visitors the quaintest small town in the area.

Pennsylvania Chautauqua Mount Gretna, Pennsylvania

Not only is it full of charm, Mt. Gretna is a summer staple because of the activities it has to offer.

Mt. Gretna Lake & Beach

In need of some diversion from going to the pool? Why not visit the Mt. Gretna lake? This is the perfect place for families to spend a summer day. There are lifeguards stationed around, kids dock to swim to, 8 acres of beach and lawn to sprawl out on, and a snack bar. For the older kids (or yourself, if you are adventurous!) try kayaking, jump off the high dive, go on the swing in the middle of the lake, or climb on the giant oversized chair and snap a picture. You’ll want to remember what a fun day you had!

The lake is open between May 27-Sept 4, from 11:30am to 6:30 pm. Due to capacity limits, admission tickets must be pre-purchased. To purchase tickets, visit: https://mtgretnalake.com/

Gretna Emporium

If you like shopping for little tchotchkes, you can’t miss the Gretna Emporium. It is overflowing with eclectic gifts and souvenirs and there is surely something that will catch your eye!

Open daily from 11:30am to 9:30pm.

Mt Gretna Theater

Whether you’re a fan of theater or not, you will love this charming, not-for-profit theater. Enjoy a mix of Broadway musicals and comedies in America’s oldest open air Summer Theatre. Saturday mornings offer theater productions for children!

Gretna Theatre in Mt. Gretna

Tickets are available for purchase by calling the box office (717-964-3627) or in-person at the theater.

Jigger Shop

Saved the best for last! The words “Jigger Shop” are truly synonymous with summer in our house and you’ll see why after your first visit. Step back in time and into this old-fashioned ice cream parlor, which offers everything from burgers, sandwiches, and salads to ice cream sundaes and milkshakes.  After all, it’s been around for 100 years – you know it has to be special!

A REEL Good Time!

Ready to think about finding your perfect home in Lancaster? If you are curious about homes that are currently on the market, our website is a great spot to start your search!

Have you returned to movie theaters since Covid hit? If you are looking for something to do on one of the rainy days we are expected to have this week, or wanting an escape from the 95 degree heat, check out Reel Cinemas – Lancaster!

Reel Cinemas, located 1500 Christopher Place in The Crossings at Conestoga Creek (by Wegmans), opened in 2020 just before Covid struck. Since reopening, they have implemented safety protocols such as distanced seating between parties. If that’s not enough, you even have the option to have a private screening by reserving an entire auditorium for groups of up to 50 people!

One thing that stands out about Reel Cinemas is their PROMOTIONS! Who doesn’t love a discount?!

  • Tightwad Tuesday – $6 admissions ALL DAY!
  • Before 4 pm – matinee prices for $10.50

***MONEY SAVING TIP: Pre-purchasing your tickets on Fandango allows you to pick your seats online after purchasing AND is cheaper than buying tickets at the theater. (Groupon does not allow you to select your seats online).

One thing our family loves to do together is watch movies, and we really missed watching new releases during the pandemic. There is nothing better than sitting in a dark theater, watching a movie while munching on buttery popcorn! But something perhaps even BETTER than Reel Cinema’s promotions… is their food. Their menu goes far beyond popcorn and candy: they offer appetizers, entrees, desserts AND they deliver it to you at your seat.

They also have a FULL BAR. We know we got your attention now!!!!

Currently, Reel Cinemas is offering seven movies with multiple show times. Go to their website to see their offerings and plan your next movie escape: https://www.rclancaster.com/Browsing/Cinemas/Details/lancaster and let us know how your experience was!

Hops for a Good Summer

Wolf and Webb Realtors like to provide our clients personalized experiences where we not only work to help you sell or buy your home but also provide you ideas, suggestions and tips for the process and your time after. One way we provide tips is through our suggestions of things to do or ways to get involved in Lancaster County. This week we want to share with you more about the Farm that brings us entertainment, great food, drinks and live music.

You heard that right, a farm that does all this! Kissel Valley Farm is one of a kind right in our backyard. Located at 645 East Oregon Road in Lititz you will find home to this wonderful farm. At the farm you will find a few things from 21 acres that provide the perfect sunset view, to a farmhouse from the 1800s giving you a taste of our rich history. You can also enjoy their vineyard. This is a partnership with Waltz Vineyards where they work to create delicious wines for Lancaster patrons and visitors to enjoy regularly. If you have not already be sure to check out our blog on wineries and vineyards within Lancaster County! While walking around the farm be sure to take in the breathtaking wildlife as they have created a 3 acre wildflower field not only for patrons to enjoy the beauty of the floral colors in bloom but to help rebuild and support the pollination within Lancaster County. 

Are you curious about homes that are currently on the market, our website is a great spot to start your search!

While Kissel Valley Farm provides a variety of breathtaking views, incredible scenery, historic buildings and local partnerships it also works to provide the Lancaster community activities, events and enjoyment all year round. One thing they are known for is the Pop-Up Beer Gardens. In 2019 Kissel Valley Farm partnered with Wyndridge Farm Brewing for their pop-ups; they did it again in 2020…do you think there might be a pop-up partnership this year? One can hope! 

The pop-ups were weekends long providing individuals opportunities to get to the event or even go a few times. Every Saturday and Sunday throughout the month of August and September you could go to Kissel Valley Farm for the free event. When on the farm you had the opportunity to taste and enjoy beers and ciders from Wyndridge as well as amazing food from local food trucks. These pop-ups were great ways to get together with friends, enjoy the outdoors, support the locals, and soak in the last weekends of summer.

If you got to the pop-ups at the right time you might be able to enjoy live music and entertainment from our Lancaster community as well as yard games. If you attended a pop-up beer garden you would see patrons sitting on beach chairs, towels and blankets. You would hear instruments, laughter, and gulps. These weekends were times that brought the Lancaster Community together full of joy and fun. This year the pop-up partnership is with Bulls Head Beer Garden, and…it already started! A video was recently posted about smoothing out the lawn for upcoming beer garden pop-ups with Bulls Head Public House throughout the weekends of May through October, more time to enjoy! 

Admissions is five dollars and children 12 and under are free. There will be a rotating mobile beer tap, wine and cocktails too, providing a taste for everyone who attends! 

If you are thinking about heading to the garden this weekend or maybe a couple times this summer be sure to bring your admissions fee, something to sit on because picnic tables are limited. Do not bring outside concessions but do support the local businesses, food trucks or catering of the weekend for delicious meals and snacks. Be sure to bring sunscreen as the summer months get closer. It will be getting warmer and stay hydrated with water and lotion to protect yourself! 

What seems like a new yearly tradition is one to be sure to make note of, it is a great way to enjoy the beautiful scenery and time with your friends.

Finding local events in Lancaster is not hard, so many companies and businesses work to bring the community together through food, drinks, entertainment and more. This is one of the many reasons why Lancaster County is truly one of a kind! A space for all to enjoy, where everyone can find things to do, try new places and meet new people. Our County is full of Local Secrets making it a unique and special place to be a part of.

Have you heard of a local event happening in the summer of 2021? Let me know about it, I would love to check it out!

I Like You Choco-LOT

Wolf and Webb Realtors like to provide our clients personalized experiences where we not only work to help you sell or buy your home but also provide you ideas, suggestions and tips for the process and your time after. One way we provide tips is through our suggestions of things to do or ways to get involved in Lancaster County, this week we want to share with you more about Chocolate!

Not just any chocolate Wilbur buds chocolate! Founded in 1865 this fan favorite brand has been a Lancaster staple, and a staple for people all over the country and I would even say world! You can buy the chocolate at retailers in the United States and online through their site or mass sites like Amazon too!

Henry Oscar Wilbur’s manufacturing company is in Lititz! Every year millions of pounds of chocolate treats are created for all to enjoy. In 2016 the factory closed, after 125 years of chocolate making production needed an uptick in tools and speed. Cargill’s took over chocolate making in Mount Joy, another location in Lititz, Hazelton and two locations in Canada. If you go to the Wilbur Chocolate Factory in Lititz you can take the museum tour to learn the history of the company while also getting to see how the chocolate is made and antique tools that were used. 

Are you curious about homes that are currently on the market, our website is a great spot to start your search!

Wilbur does not just make buds but those are the most popular of the candies made which were introduced in 1893 and talk about a long history of tasty! The buds are named after flower buds because of the way they look and the mold used to create the chocolates are very similar to a real flower bud. Nowadays Wilbur Chocolate has a handful of products for patrons to enjoy. With the classic buds there are also chocolate covered fruits, nuts and more, cocoa, chocolate chips and even coffee!

While the taste of these sweet treats will clearly show you how this company has been a treasured treat of so many for such a long time another reason I think they are successful is the Cargill Cocoa Promise that they have. The company has a commitment to using and working with sustainable cocoa farming, focusing on community impact! A way to know that your purchase is helping communities is looking for the UTZ Certified logo or a marking that says The Cargill Cocoa Promise. When you buy a product like this you are helping sustain the cocoa farming. The Wilbur company works to provide the farmers with education and skills through training programs, schools for children, health care and nutritional guidance support for the Cocoa communities. 

While you can buy products online through Wilbur’s site, commercial sites and at some commercial stores I suggest going to the Wilbur Chocolate Retail Store to shop around. Located at 45 North Broad Street in Lititz. You can shop around Monday through Saturday from 9am to 5pm giving you so much time to peruse the chocolatey treats. Due to Covid the retail shop has changed their daily shopping to meet the guidelines and regulations while also giving multiple options for their patrons to shop comfortably from offering curbside pick-up, to 30 minute sanitizing shifts. When you are wanting to use the curbside option you can call ahead to order your treats so that they are ready for you when you pull up. Ready to take home your tasty treats and gifts? Sometimes stocking up during your shopping spree you will need to know how to properly store the chocolate so that it does not go to waste. Chocolate from Wilbur should be stored at temperatures around 65 degrees Farengeitte and not go over 70 degrees. If it does go to 70 degrees you may be reducing the shelf life of you goodies. If you are storing properly these treats could have a shelf life from nine to eighteen months depending on the products you picked up. 

If you are a baker or wanting to improve your baking skills Wilbur is a perfect stop for creating delicious chocolate treats. You can purchase products from the retail store that you can bake with such as cocoa butter bases and confectionery products. Check out their website section titled working with chocolate for all the tips and tricks you would need to make a delicious dessert for your next family birthday or backyard barbeque ! 

If you have never tried a chocolate treat from Wilbur let me tell you…you are missing out! Wilbur is a great gift idea for friends and loved ones too. If you have a friend or family member that is a new home buyer maybe you get them Wilbur coffee and a set of mugs or some buds with tulip buds for their garden. The options to mix and match these sweet treats with a home decor gift are millions. Or if you are looking for a day out and want to dive into another piece of Lancaster History head over to the old Wilbur Factory for a Museum tour, it will not disappoint. Seeing the history of chocolate making is truly fascinating. 

While the buds are a classic and come in milk, dark and semi-sweet flavors Wilbur has so much more to offer. A fan favorite are their English Toffee dipped chocolates, chocolate covered peanut butter ritz crackers, chocolate covered oreos and Lititz sweet/salty bark. What is your go to Wilbur order?

After treating your pup to a delicious treat or stocking up on some great food for them, maybe you want to take them to move around and get some exercise.

Realize your pup was not on their best behavior at the park? Or maybe you saw a dog so well trained you are questioning if you should teach your furry love some new tactics? Look no further than The Zen Dog Den. The business is run by certified dog trainer Cherisse Feddock plus two other fabulous behavioral trainers Stacey Samii and Kelcy Waller. Everyone works as a team to help families achieve peace and happiness with their dogs inside and outside the home. The dog trainer Cherisse has been working with four legged friends as a foster pet parent, walker, educator, and trainer while also promoting pet adoption. The team has years of experience and expertise to help you and your pup be the best they can be! Cherisse has also worked with trainers across the world such as Cesar Millan.

The approach of the Zen Dog Den is to not only train but train by focusing on behavioral, instinctual and primal approaches which is truly remarkable and creates a different experience for the dog as well as the owner long after they have completed the program. Owners learn to truly understand their four legged family and build on methods that can be practiced in multiple settings. Through the work of the trainers, you and your family will be forever grateful as you learn and adapt to understand and connect with your pup. There are multiple types of services and training you can request from refreshers to a brand new owner. All of the training is done in-home so it is personal and convenient for clients, not to mention that most of the unwanted behavior occurs in the home in the first place.

Something that is a crowd favorite is the Zen Dog Pack Walks at the Overlook Park. This is an opportunity for clients to practice what they learned in the program and see what kind of pup they have within a pack of other dogs and humans. The best part is that the Pack Walks are free of charge and do not require RSVP! The trainers are available during the walks to answer questions. If you are interested in learning more, request a session or contact the Zen Dog Den today. The work that Cherisse, Stacey, and Kelcy does is remarkable and I am sure you will be talking about it for years to come! In fact, the Zen Dog Den offers clients a lifetime of support for their beloved dogs and families. Even after training is over, clients may reach out by text, phone call, or email for any reason with no cost. Having a pup of my own that has worked with the Zen Dog Den, I have nothing but great things to say. Cherisse has incredible talent and has helped us learn about our puppy while also helping her build up and learn great training techniques.
