Visit the PA Wilds booth at the PA Farm Show!
Will you be attending the 2020 Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg?
If so, you’ll have an opportunity to learn more about the Pennsylvania Wilds and purchase products made in the region! (Yes, here’s an opportunity to celebrate the Pennsylvania Wilds outside of the actual Pennsylvania Wilds!)
The PA Wilds Conservation Shop, a gift shop that sources regionally-made products from artisans in the Pennsylvania Wilds, will have a pop-up shop at the Farm Show January 4-11.
Since the PA Wilds Conservation Shop is physically located at Kinzua Bridge State Park, in the northwest part of the state, participation in the PA Farm Show provides a prime opportunity for people living in or visiting the Harrisburg area to learn about the 13-county region known as the Pennsylvania Wilds and to also find products that represent the beauty and bounty of our region. From t-shirts and stylish totes, to jewelry and travel mugs, to snacks, books and more — there will be something for everyone! (Hint: You might also be able to find a meaningful Valentine’s Day gift for a loved one.)
Products to be featured include:
- Earrings made from post-consumer cardboard by Jabebo (Centre County, PA)
- Lanternfly pins made from cold porecelain by Amanda Lewis at Petal (Clarion County, PA)
- PA Wilds Are Calling travel mugs, made of 40% recycled paper by Whirley DrinkWorks! (Warren County, PA)

The shop will be located at Booth #752 Main Hall East.
This opportunity was made possible by a collaboration with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (PCA), a state agency tasked with strengthening the cultural, educational, and economic vitality of Pennsylvania’s communities through the arts.
The PCA will be distributing information about the agency, running a 3D printing demonstration, and offering a creative opportunity for children that allows them to design their own keychain to take home.
