Poconos Events

There’s So Much On The Horizon in the Poconos, You’ll Be Head Over Hills!  Most likely, you’ll have a hard time deciding what to do next. You may decide to hit a food and wine festival to nourish your foodie soul – or maybe you’ll want to see a show. Great! You can do both. In fact, you can do a lot more than that. The Poconos has concerts, festivals, races, comedy shows, theater, carnivals, and county fairs.

The Poconos concerts run the gamut from local acts to national tours – and the genres run the gamut from rock to blues to country. Pocono Mountain festivals celebrate everything from beer to garlic to wieners! And what about the fantastic food concoctions you’ll run into on the midway at the county fairs -­‐ who’s up for deep-­‐fried Oreos?

All sorts of Pocono events are coming up, such as art and music festivals, NASCAR and Indy races, and more! In the Pocono Mountains, you can do whatever you want.

If you have an event and want to submit it for inclusion in our site, please send it to Events@VisitPoconos.com.  Please include event info and photo(s).  If you would like us to cover your event, we have writers and contributors who may be able to attend.

An Iconic Career Win at the Tricky Triangle: A Look at the 2017 Pocono Axalta 400 Race

Around 10 a.m. at the Pocono Raceway on June 11th, the cool morning hours offered a vast, clear blue sky. Against the mountainous, wooded backdrop, pit crews were preparing their team’s stock cars for inspections before the Pocono 400 race.

 

The place was already booming with onlookers out for the full experience; many lined up at the inspection area, watching each car come in.  “It’s fascinating watching the cars getting all the measurements. It’s our first time at the Tricky Triangle,” says Julie Zwahr who travelled all the way with her family from Texas.
