The City of Harrisburg’s 104th annual Kipona celebration will look a bit different this year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this longstanding tradition has been modified to feature a hybrid of in-person (Saturday only) and virtual activities (all 3 days). The in-person activities will include 15 food trucks offering takeout from some of your festival favorites on Saturday, September 5 from 3-8pm on City Island followed by fireworks at 8:15pm.
While the activities may look different, you can still find your favorite festival food! 15 food trucks will be serving tacos, cheesesteaks, empanadas, stuffed waffles and pretzels, crab cakes, crepes, fried chicken and more. Festival favorites such as funnel cakes, fried oreos, burgers, sausages and Farm Show Milkshakes will also be available.
There will be cones spaced 6-ft apart in the food truck lines. Please stand at these cones while waiting in line to maintain social distancing. A face mask and/or shield is required while waiting in line for the respect and safety of those around you. Hand washing stations will be available for attendees to use after receiving their food orders, but we also encourage you to bring your own hand sanitizer to use often. Take the food home to enjoy or spread out along Riverfront park or City Island with a socially distanced picnic. No seating will be provided in an effort to limit contact. Plan to bring your own chairs and blankets.
The virtual activities will include an online marketplace to shop handcrafted wares, specialty foods and other products. There will also be performances from local bands, kids activities, artisan demonstrations and more.
