Tionesta Indian Festival 2013

Tionesta has a rich cultural history and was occupied by Native Americans for centuries. The townspeople, of this tiny borough, take pride in their Native American roots by hosting the week-long Tionesta Indian Festival

The name “Tionesta” comes from the Native American word meaning “where the waters meet.” Tionesta lies along the Allegheny River at its connection with Tionesta Creek located in a wooded area in northwestern Pennsylvania at the outskirts of the Allegheny National Forest. The area attracts outdoor adventures who come to fish, canoe and kayak in the Allegheny and surrounding streams.

An annual event since 1965, the 2013 festival will be held on August 10-18.  Activities include dozens of family-friendly events such as a carnival, arts-and-crafts vendors, trash-and-treasure sales, chainsaw carver and auction, sports tournaments, a pet parade, costume contest, a pageant, a fishing derby, bingo and fireworks. A 5K race is held every year and participants (divided into age groups) can run or walk along the paved streets of Tionesta. Fireworks on Saturday, August 17 at 10:00pm.
