The Upper Delaware S&RR and the Zane Grey's West Society will host the 12th Annual Zane Grey Festival once again this summer. The free festival will be held at the Zane Grey Museum in Lackawaxen, Pennsylvania from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Saturday, July 16, 2016.
The Lackawaxen and Delaware Rivers are what initially drew Zane Grey to the area. These rivers fulfilled his love for fishing and the outdoors. Zane and his brother Romer would eventually settle in Lackawaxen and call the area home. Zane Grey lived in Lackawaxen, Pennsylvania from 1905 to 1918. Exhibits in the Zane Grey Museum give viewers a better understanding of the life and writing of the famed western author. His office and study has been meticulously recreated based on an interior photograph by famed photographer Louis Hensel.
The Zane Grey Festival is geared towards fun for the entire family with many activities and events for children and adults.
Zane Grey's legacy of literature and sportsmanship lives on in Lackawaxen. Come join the fun and learn more about the Western novelist from Lackawaxen. Light refreshments will be served all day. For more information call (570) 685-4871 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
