About The Event

We hope you can join us for our annual Lititz Pretzel Fest. Highlighting the Lititz area's rich pretzel history, this day of fun will include more than 20 tastings with pretzels as an ingredient--sweet, savory, kickin', surprising. Along with the tastings, there will be some beer and spirits beverage tastings, as well as music all around downtown Lititz. 

Ticket holders will have the opportunity to vote for their favorites: Sweet, Savory, Most Creative and Beverage.

Downtown parking will be free the day of the event. This event will be held rain or shine.

​This year's event is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Lititz Area and will fund a FREE day of fun scheduled on Saturday, May 21, 2022 in Lititz Springs Park for kids 11 and under. The number will be limited, and vouchers must be picked up before the Kids Day event.

Proceeds from Pretzel Fest will also fund other children's activities and charities, including Free Kids' Fun Day in Lititz Springs Park.
Lititz Pretzel History

Lititz, settled in 1756, is the home of the first commercial pretzel bakery in North America. 

The origins of the pretzel date back to early European history. Early German settlers brought their recipes with them to the "colonies," specifically in a new settlement in Warwick Township, Pennsylvania. In 1756 the new settlement was named Lititz.

The Sturgis family started baking pretzels commercially in Lititz in 1861 in a home that is one of the original buildings in Lititz. It is listed on the National Registry of historical places at 219 E. Main St in Lititz.
