Plan Your Visit
This popular street festival is back! Created in 2006 by the Historic District merchants, Harvest Fest started as an effort to attract visitors from all around the Lehigh Valley, to the downtown stores and restaurants. It started as a small wine and beer tasting Fall festival and has become the most popular street fair in the Lehigh Valley with the best Wine, Soup and Beer Tasting Trails around!

Programs & Workshops
Free Sundays at the Museum returns with the reopening of the Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts and opening of Art at Home. Throughout the year we’ll be exploring different art techniques and mediums and expanding our art “palette”! Ticket reservations are strongly encouraged.
FREE to attend! Running every Saturday, April-November, visitors will be able to learn more about the barns, buildings, and gardens that have been a part of the Moravian community since 1748. Bring the kids along for fun outdoor activities and crafts each week! Burnside Plantation is also dog-friendly, so bring your furry friends along as well!
Design After Dark, an adult programming series at the Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts, launched in April 2019. Focusing on art and design, the inaugural season included a pop-up retro arcade, trivia nights, an art café, exclusive walking tours, and a comedy night. While placed on hold for the 2020 season, Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites is refocusing in 2021 around unique experiences by Lehigh Valley Creatives.
Proudly sponsored by Altitude Marketing.
You're invited to step into the Single Sisters’ House, the Lehigh Valley’s only historically rooted, bricks and mortar, women’s programming space. This year, the Single Sisters’ Series takes on the theme- “For Your Health,” highlighting different elements of health and safety and connecting to the progressive Moravian approach to healthcare and mutual aid.
