20 Can’t Miss Events in June 2021

Welcome Back Summer in June with Outdoor Festivals, Baseball, Live Music, NASCAR and So Much More

Sweet summer days are back in NEPA. The skies are blue. The intoxicating aroma of BBQ wafts through the air. The clink of a baseball bat rings out from the neighborhood field. And, in the distance, children squeal with laughter as a grinning dad performs his signature cannonball (for the seventh time).

We just can’t get enough of this warm air and sunshine. And the longer days mean more time to spend outside. Let’s run down that summer to-do list, shall we? We’ve got rafting down a cool clear river and kayaking under the moonlight. There are more new hiking trails than we can count. We can’t forget about the picnic at the state park. Oh, and of course we’re going camping. We also have to play some golf and squeeze in a little fishing

Wait, there’s more? That’s right, farmer’s markets have started back up. Oh yeah, we planned that day trip, and that Knoebels trip, and that brewery trip. There’s also the train ride, the wine trail, the day at the pool… It’s gonna’ be a long summer. Thankfully, NEPA has so many awesome things to do.

Plan a whole season of summer fun using our comprehensive events page. And, if you need a little help getting started, look no further than this convenient can’t miss list.
