Businessmen Hope Kutztown Folk Festival Gives Economic Boost |  Berks Regional News

“All the vendors,” Lapic said. “You know, at the end of the day they come across the street. They get something to eat. They want to kill some time. You know, to them it’s a treat.” One of the things helping to push businesses like hers into the future is the return of in-person events, like those organized by the Kutztown Folk Festival. A farm-to-table dinner, line dancing, and a mini-version of the festival itself are all on the schedule for the days ahead.

“It’s now 2015 again and let’s try it again,” Lapic said. Now, it’s back to the soap-making table.

“It’s been challenging but we’re doing alright,” Laincz said. “The main reason being we have a very supportive community who really believe in supporting the local businesses.”

It may not be the full-blown folk fest many are used to, but it’s a show of support for a community that continues to fight an economic battle. “Everybody’s had to get creative over the last year-and-a-half with the different events and different things that we would normally be doing,” said Rebecca Laincz, co-owner of Firefly Bookstore, “and I think this is a great way to start bringing back the folk festival.”
