Happy New Year!!!

We hope you had a wonderful Holiday Season, but we are already looking forward to the 2019 Firefly Season.  We are finding it harder and harder to not think about fireflies all year-round even in the dead of winter, and with only six months to go, the PAFF board is busy planning for the 7th Annual PA Firefly Festival Season.  Based on the number of emails and phone calls already, we know many of you are just as anxious and wondering.  So, to end the suspense... we plan to offer once again the weekend guided firefly excursions throughout the Allegheny National Forest and Forest County areas during the month of June in addition to the night of the festival.  We will also be adding some other unique opportunities you won't want to miss, but we will have to wait to reveal those later in the spring.  Be sure you subscribe to the PAFF newsletter on the pafireflyfesitval.org website to get the latest news and dates for registration for all of the events.  

If you are planning on coming to see fireflies this summer or attend the 2019 festival, it is not too early to make your reservations for lodging accommodations.  You can find a list of those on the Forest County website.   

If you are a year-round or seasonal resident of Forest County, we welcome you to join us as a volunteer at the festival or maybe consider becoming an "official" Firefly Guide.  You can find an application by clicking here.  Guides will receive training and compensation for their time.

We are also looking for artists, crafters and food vendors to participate on the day of the festival.  Applications are now being accepted here.

We are continuously looking for ways to improve the festival and the firefly viewing experience for the visitors. We hope you will be able to join us in the celebration and wonder of fireflies this summer.
