2nd Annual

Reading Pretzel Fest

First Energy Stadium

Gates open at 11am


In 2015 we will be attempting to break the Guinness Book of World Records for the Worlds Largest Pretzel! This Record was set in  Neufahrn, Germany, on 21 September 2008. It will not be easy to create a Pretzel over 850lbs. We hope you will be there to root us on.

Creative Pretzel Ideas

Year 1 was dubbed our Sourdough Starter year. In less than 3 months we saw over 1,000 Facebook likes, had a sold out Craft Beer Tasting and over 2,000 people in attendance. We love our Pretzels in Berks County and this year will we be even better. All of our best local Pretzel Vendors will be there including Unique, Tom Sturgis, Pretzel Revolution, Dutch Country Pretzels, Fallers, Uncle Henry’s and if we are lucky, even Bell Alley.
