Stock Car Racing
Jennerstown Speedway has affordable stock car races every Saturday night, which is fun for the entire family! The gates open at 4 p.m., so get there on time to watch the on-track practice and then the race starts at 6 p.m.!
These races are enough to thrill everybody, young and old. You won't have to break the bank for a family-friendly Saturday night; the speedway offers free parking for spectators, adult tickets are $10, children ages 12 and under get in FREE and they sell all of your favorite "summer fun foods" for cheap! Come see, hear and feel the roaring engines against the backdrop of the Laurel Highlands’ great outdoors.
If you're having a Labor Day picnic, be sure to make your way to the Somerset County Farmers' Market, a producer-only market located at Georgian Place outlet mall.
The Somerset County Farmers' Market is special, they have a mission to provide children and adults in their area with locally-grown and farm products and provide a venue for the social, educational and economic growth of the community. The market accepts WIC, presents educational events for buyers and vendors and gives donations to food banks, churches, homeless centers and more. All the more reason to spend your Saturday morning shopping at the Somerset County Farmers' Market!
