Karoondinha Music Festival To Bring John Legend, Alessia Cara To Penn’s Cave This Summer

A new three-day music festival will bring artists like John Legend, Alessia Cara, and X Ambassadors to Centre Hall this summer. The first annual Karoondinha (pronounced ka-roon-din-ha) Music and Arts Festival will take place July 21-23, 2017 at Penn’s Cave & Wildlife Park, about a 25-minute drive from State College.

Penn’s Cave features acres of sunflowers, trout fishing, off-road tours, and native wildlife like mountain lions, wolves, bison, bears, longhorn cattle, and bighorn sheep. The Seneca tribe named the land Karoondinha, which means “The Land of Shining Waters.”

Siblings Kaleena and Paul Rallis, who created the festival, grew up working at their family business — Penn’s Cave. After working in the entertainment industry, the duo wanted to bring a destination music and arts event back to Central Pennsylvania.

General admission and VIP passes go on sale Wednesday, March 1 at noon on the Karoondinha Festival’s website. General Admission 3-Day Passes start at $249, while VIP 3-Day Passes start at $599. This includes the music, Penn’s Cave off-roading tours, art installations, daily workshops, and “an unbeatable gourmet food experience,” according to a press release from the festival. You can use our promo code “ONWARDKHA” to get a special discounted price here.

Karoodinha is also partnering with the Wildlife for Everyone Foundation, which celebrates Pennsylvania wildlife, and the Bestwick Foundation, which helps local families and individuals struggling with cancer or other hardships.
