The Plymouth Alive Kielbasa Festival is on for this summer.
Organizers of the festival dedicated to all things kielbasa announced the return of the popular event at a meeting Wednesday evening at the Goodwill Hose Co.
The 17th usually annual event — canceled last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic — will be held Aug. 14-15, organizers said. There will be no parade this year and the annual kielbasa-judging contest will not be held.
Plymouth Alive members also announced it would host a wine tasting event on May 29 at the Goodwill Hose Co.’s former bazaar grounds. It will be a fundraiser called “Sip to Support” the volunteer fire company and only 300 tickets will be sold.
Three wineries — Case Quattro Winery in Peckville, Lucchi Family Wine Cellars in Scranton and Talerico’s Tropical Winery in Taylor — are among those taking part as of now. Plymouth’s Bearded Barrel Brewing will also participate.
