Pennsylvania German Powwow

Faith healing and folk magic of the Pennsylvania Germans

Legends and Lore of the Keystone State

Join us in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on Saturday, February 3rd, 2018 for a day full of legends, stories, magic, folklore, mystery, and all things curious and odd about Pennsylvania! There will be vendors, informational tables, seminars, and book signings!

So far, we have authors and presenters Kevin Coolidge, Matt Lake, Cory Hutcheson, Thomas White, Jean-Paul Benowitz, Patty Wilson, Timothy Renner, Wesley Blymire, Gettysburg Ghost Tours, and several others in the works!

The Legends and Lore event is a collaborative idea between myself and a few of my folklore friends; Matt Lake, Brian Goodman, Cory Hutcheson, and Thomas White. Pennsylvania has such a rich and diverse culture of folkloric tales and we felt it would be a great idea to showcase some of these things in a one-day event in the state's capital.

Legends and Lore will take place at 300 North Street in downtown Harrisburg, just next to the State Capital building (inside the State Museum). The doors open at 10am and the event closes at 3pm. 

Throughout the day there will be several seminars for you to attend, all free of charge!

I will be doing a Powwow seminar at noon that day and I hope to meet some of you there. If you have personal powwowing stories or experiences, please find me at the event and share those stories with me!

Attention vendors! If you have a business and would like to have vending space at this event, please email me at There is limited vending space but right now I am in need of a few businesses that sell products of interest to Pennsylvania folklore, such as hex signs, PA cultural items/foods, arts and crafts, etc.
