The Goschenhoppen Historians are devoted to preserving the folk culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch.

The Goschenhoppen Folk Festival has been held annually for over 50 years.  Hundreds of volunteers demonstrate the trades and home skills of the Goschenhoppen region, one of the oldest Pennsylvania German communities in America.

Other special events include the Spring Frolic and Christmas Market as well as monthly meetings which focus on 18th and 19th century life in the region.
