Did you know that Lancaster is home to the residence and final resting place of the 15th President of the United States, James Buchanan?

Wheatland, the home of Buchanan from the time he left office in 1861 until his death in 1868, is a preserved marvel of architecture located just outside of Lancaster City. This beautiful home, built in the popular federal style, contains 17 rooms that have changed very little since the time of President Buchanan.

General Admission tours are open to the public and offered Monday – Saturday at 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm. To learn more about this wonderful vestige of American history, visit https://www.lancasterhistory.org/visit/.

Not far from Wheatland is the final resting place of President Buchanan. The gravesite, located in beautifully restored Woodward Hill Cemetery (538 East Strawberry Street, Lancaster City), is accessible to the public and may be visited from dawn til dusk everyday. The gravesite is immaculately cared for and is the location of a yearly ceremony to celebrate the birthday of President Buchanan.

If you are looking to visit a preserved piece of American history, while also honoring one of our nation’s leaders, take a day and tour historic Wheatland and the President’s gravesite. Just two of many examples of the rich history located right here in Central Pennsylvania!

Do you have a funny bone that needs tickled? Are you, like many of us, looking for an escape from the serious conversations that many of us deal with on a regular basis? Treat yourself to a night of gut-busting laughter right in downtown York, provided by the one and only Kevin Farley! One of the most highly regarded and well-traveled comedians of our time, Farley is a regular at such high profile venues as The Laugh Factory and The Improv in Los Angeles, as well as The Comedy Store. Lucky for us here in Central PA, The Appell Center for the Performing Arts will be bringing Farley’s unique style of humor to the Capitol Theater (50 North George Street, York, PA) on Friday, April 13th beginning at 7:30 pm.

Presently, Kevin Farley is co-starring inF is for Family,” a Netflix comedy series and in CMT’s new prime-time series “Still the King.” Tickets for this show are $15 in advance and $20 at the door and can be purchased here. Don’t miss this chance to see one of the best living comedians while also supporting the York arts and culture scene!

If you’re a fan of live music, then Lancaster City is THE place to be on Thursday, April 12th as the 10th annual Launch Music Conference and Festival gets underway! Launch runs over four days, showcasing a variety of musical genres as well as high-quality panel discussions. We could go into more detail, but we thought we’d let the founder of this amazing event, Jeremy Weiss, break it down!

“I just don’t think it’s possible to mention only one thing I’m stoked about at The 10th Annual LAUNCH Music Conference & Festival! We have the World Premiere of the film Barn Burner, the story of the incredible number of world-renown metal and hardcore bands and musicians, from seemingly the most unlikely of places: the quiet, conservative, Amish country, Lancaster County.  We have a show with multi-platinum artist, PnB Rock. We have a one-of-a-kind acoustic performance from members of seminal indie/metal icons, Underoath, we have the 2nd installment of Fest Friday at LAUNCH, where thousands gather outdoors at Binns Park for unique food, drink, and  stages of live music, and we have the 15th Anniversary Show of twice-Grammy nominated August Burns Red, featuring reunions of past lineups to include older songs, that haven’t been part of their set in nearly a decade, as well as their biggest hits! That doesn’t even BEGIN to address the panel schedule by day, STACKED with today’s most successful, insightful, and talented Industry Professionals from around the country.  I’m particularly fired up to see the panel with Talinda Bennington, widow of Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, as well as Jim Digby (Linkin Park Team) and Anna Shinoda (wife of Linkin Park guitarist Mike Shinoda), addressing mental health and the stresses of a career in music.”


See our point? Needless to say, we’re SO FREAKIN’ EXCITED!  Passes and individual tickets, as well as the full schedule of panels and nighttime entertainment, are available here.

Looking to enjoy a night out on the town while also sharing some great stories from your past? Check out the Harrisburg Story Slam, happening live at the Harrisburg Hilton and presented by the Whitaker Center. What is a Story Slam you might be asking? Well, think of it as an opportunity to share some of the most exciting, unbelievable or outrageous experiences of your life in a fun and open setting of adults. This Wednesday’s theme will focus on times in life when we’ve been fooled. Remember buying a car from a used car dealer who promised you the “deal of a lifetime”? How about interviewing for that job where you were promised “amazing opportunities for advancement” only to find out it was a one-person operation? Or, maybe you met someone on your favorite social media site, only to realize upon meeting them in person that their profile didn’t quite match up with what you were seeing? Unburden yourself, and have a great time in the process. See you at the Harrisburg Hilton on Wednesday, April 4th beginning at 7:30 pm!

Tickets are required for both performers and spectators. Your ticket gives you one complimentary drink and the opportunity to be entered into that night’s running to tell your story or just to enjoy what others have to say. This event is strictly 21+. Tickets are $10 at the door (cash only).
