Flaming passion for youth, family and community drive this festival

How proud Greater Renovo and all of Western Clinton County can and should be as the 2019 rendition of the official Pennsylvania State Flaming Foliage Festival gets underway!

Now in its 71st year, count this extravaganza as among the most special events Pennsylvania has to offer.

We predict the foliage will be flaming — or at least just about.

What will be on fire is the passion that volunteers put into this festival, which serves to bring families, friends, former residents and admirers back home … and the visiting queen contestants from high schools far and wide and their families.

Yes, families.

The festival is more about celebrating our youth, our families, community spirit and pride than it is about the leaves changing color each fall.

Thousands will gather in Renovo as queen contestants present themselves and their hard work in serving their schools, families, communities, state and nation.


These wonderful young women and their escorts represent the best and brightest … and the promise of a brighter tomorrow.

They are the seeds their parents have planted with the dream of growing a life of love and service to others.

And they’re being hosted by residents of a small town with a heart of gold.

Congratulations and have a wonderful weekend amid the gorgeous and blessed mountains of Pennsylvania!
