Expect Traffic and Nantmeal Road Closure
In anticipation of large crowds and additional traffic, you may want to avoid the corner of Rte. 100 and Rte. 401. If possible complete as many errands as you can before Friday. West Vincent Police will close Nantmeal Rd. from just west of Griffith Hall (Fire Company) to Rte. 100 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Traveling from Nantmeal Village to Rte. 100 use Horseshoe Trail Rd.
Drop Off Only at the Show Grounds
If you plan on attending the concert note that all parking is off site and no parking will be available on the show grounds. You may be dropped off on the grounds, so arrange for a friend, neighbor or your sitter to drop you off and pick you up after the performance.
If you have questions or comments about the Country Spirit USA Music Festival, please call 610 331-0432 or email email@example.com Do not call the Township as we have no additional information about the event.

Spotted Lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula) is a new invasive insect found in southeastern PA, the only place in the US where it is known to exist. Native to parts of Asia, it was discovered in Berks County in 2014, and is slowly spreading to other counties.
Spotted lanternfly feed on a wide range of plants including maple, willow, staghorn sumac, birch, grapes, and many others. They pose major threat to PA agriculture, including the grape, tree-fruit, hardwood and nursery industries.
While the Penna Dept. of Agriculture and Penn State Agricultural Extension are actively looking for solutions to help stop the insects’ spread and save agricultural crops from serious damage, concerned citizens are the greatest resource for containing and controlling this potentially devastating pest. Learn about spotted lanternfly, the quarantine, and what you can do to help.
