Groundhog day 2017 was a blast. There is a large crowd here for one of America's most interesting holidays. If you decide to do groundhog day, catch the bus at the local Walmart, costs $5. If you get on the bus by 4:30 or 5 would manage to get a decent spot at the knob. They do dancing and singing... More

Bring hand and foot warmers! We bought inner-circle passes from groundhog.org and were able to get up close to the stage. Festival started at 3:00 am. We got there at 5:30 and didn't feel like we had missed a thing.

We had a great time visiting Punxsutawney. Went to Gobbler's Knob for all of the GHD festivities. It was snowing at times and very cold, but it was a great experience. I would have never guessed that I would have been standing at Gobbler's Knob at 0330 in the morning, drinking hot choc and eating a hot dog whilst waiting... More

We visited Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017. We were too late to have breakfast with Phil, but saw the stage where it all happens every year on Feb. 2nd. There is even a ramp for wheelchairs to watch the festivities!

In route from a family wedding to a business meeting, we decided to break up the 11 hour drive and stay the night in Punxsutawney. Thought it was the "cute" town in the movie but that is not the case. Gobblers Knob; however, is the real deal and it was fun to walk around and see even though there wasn't... More

I'd been to Gobblers Knob once before but this time, 12/2716, took my kids and grandkids. What luck that in spite of it being winter, there was Bob Young, tour guide extrordinare, it's fun just to take photos of the stage, and Den, etc. but having a guide like Bob was a real bonus. We got not only the history... More

Driving through the area and stopped to see Gobbler's Knob 2 months before Punxsutawney Phil makes his next appearance on Groundhog's Day. The bulletin board and interpretive signs give a thorough walk-through timeline of the history of the area and the fun that is the Groundhog Festival. A few steps away is the stage, a couple of small buildings and... More

Always liked the movie, was a little disappointed the town looks nothing like the movie. Was hoping to find a nice place to eat, but honestly there is nothing much there. Stopped in at the Burrow for a drink. It's pretty far off the beaten path, probably won't be back.
