presented by Just Born Quality Confections

December 30 & 31 | 3-6 p.m.

Ring in the New Year with a sweet celebration at PEEPSFEST® from 3 – 6 p.m. on Fri., Dec. 30 or Sat., Dec. 31. The event will be held outside with family-friendly activities and fireworks following the annual PEEPS® Chick Drop on both Friday and Saturday. To celebrate Just Born Quality Confection’s 100th anniversary, attendees will get a sneak peep of the tasty new flavor offerings that are hitting store shelves for the 2023 Easter season! As per tradition, the massive PEEPS® Chick, weighing in at 400 pounds and standing 4 feet and 9 inches tall, will descend for the countdown to the New Year at 5:35 p.m., on both Dec. 30 and Dec. 31, followed by a stunning display of fireworks.

This year’s festival will take place entirely outdoors and tickets will be required to ensure a safe and quality experience for all in attendance. Tickets, which can be purchased for $5 per person, are limited and include Just Born Quality Confections goodie bags for all kids under 12, one coupon to redeem a free s’mores kit for all kids under 12, live musical performances and entertainment, and PEEPS® sampling stations. Everyone’s favorite event, the PEEPS® Chick Drop, will take place each day at 5:35 p.m.

The whole family can also enjoy activities like the PEEPSFEST® Scavenger Hunt, the Leaning Tower of PEEPS®, cornhole, Giant Jenga and crafts by local groups from around the Lehigh Valley.
