come to ligonier, pa! (just an hour southeast of pittsburgh)

From the east or west: Route 30 is probably your best bet. 

From the south: Take Route 711 north from the Donegal exit of the Turnpike 

From the north: Routes 711 or 271 south (but don't go into Ligonier)

In Ligonier, take Route 711 north (around the bandstand/gazebo in the middle of town) and continue on Route 711 for 2.5 miles to the intersection with Route 271 at the Sheetz store. Bear right onto 271 north for about a mile into the village of Waterford. The festival will be on your right at the Ligonier Township Fire Department's fairgrounds.

Note: The festival is actually in the village of Waterford, not Ligonier. However, there's another Waterford in northern Pa. and we want to avoid confusion. Plus, Ligonier's easier to find.


There is major renovation/construction work happening on "The Diamond" in the center of Ligonier at the junction of Route 711 and Main Street (the circle on the map below). There is single lane traffic north/south on 711, but access to Main Street, east and west, is closed from the Diamond. To avoid the construction area completely, there's also a one-block detour around the Diamond. Not a huge deal, but you should be aware.

There is also bridge work on Route 711 north of Ligonier with single lane traffic. The single lane is narrow, so use caution if you have a wide RV.
