Happy to announce that Grease and Grace will be vending at this year’s 2015 Sled Fest at the Old Sled Works in Duncannon, PA. It’s sure to be a super time and we’ll be excited to meet up with more rockabilly East Coasters. The scene here isn’t as congregated as on the West Coast. It’s a bit smaller and more spread out, so I’m really glad for events like this helping to propel the Rockabilly Scene.
About the Old Sled Works
“In 1904, Lightning Guider sled production began in this two block long factory along the Appalachian Trail. For nearly 85 years, millions of sleds and other wooden products (coaster wagons, safety gates and porch swings) were proudly built here and shipped throughout the US. At one point, this had become the largest sled factory in the country.
Sadly, production ceased in 1988 and the factory officially closed in late 1990.
In April 1991, the buildings re-opened as the Old Sled Works, a unique market featuring over 125 antique and craft vendors. A sled museum is also inside. Amuse yourself in the working penny arcade and have a milkshake at our vintage soda fountain.”
Based on information I’ve collected from past years, this is what to expect:
The festival is the creation of Hooligan’s Car Club and The Old Sled Works. It will feature music, food vendors, pre 1972 cars, antiques and vendors with merch (like us!), lots of pin up girls and a contest for Sled Queen! The Sled Works, with its old fashioned soda fountain and snacks, will be open as well.
There’s a facebook page for the fest, which will be updated as the event nears.
