National Road Festival
Where: Along Route 40
When: Saturday, May 18, 2019 through Sunday, May 19, 2019
The Annual National Pike Festival / National Road Festival is held the third weekend in May. It is known as the “world’s longest festival” happening along 90 miles of the Historic National Road in Pennsylvania (Route 40) through Somerset, Fayette, and Washington Counties. It is organized by volunteers from every community along the Historic Corridor. An authentic wagon train makes its way from town to town.
This festival does not take place in just one place. Various communities and towns along the Route 40 hold their own activities – some with festivals, arts and crafts shows, music, vendors, entertainment, food, etc. Some of these communities in Washington County are Claysville, Scenery Hill and Brownsville.
