“Snitz” in German literally means “slice.” For Pennsylvania German immigrants to Lancaster County more than 300 years ago, “snitz” referred especially to sliced, dried apples. This popular annual festival celebrates their beginnings with great food, interpreters in traditional dress, hands-on activities and demonstrations of colonial-era arts, crafts and farm life: threshing, quilting, loom weaving, heckling flax, churning butter, and making shingles, shoes, candles and corn-husk dolls.
