Crossroads Pizza, Cheesesteaks Coming to Musikfest for the First Time

If you love Musikfest as well as the food from Hellertown Crossroads Hotel, you’re probably going to be very happy if you attend the festival this year.

New for 2017, Crossroads’ famous pizza and cheesesteaks will be available for the first time at the 10-day free music festival that’s held at various ‘platzes’ (venues) throughout Bethlehem.

Following a six-month closure, Crossroads reopened late last year under new ownership, after the Matey family sold the business and their recipes.

The Crossroads stand will be at Wells Fargo Festplatz, which is located near Main and Spring streets in the area of the Main Street ramp of the Hill-to-Hill Bridge.

Festplatz is home to Musikfest’s only dance floor and offers a covered seating area.

Also new to Musikfest this year will be the Couchpota-doh Food Truck, which is based in Fountain Hill.

Couchpota-doh will be parked at Martin Guitar Handwerkplatz, where the owners will be selling fresh-cut fries, fried mashed potatoes, mozzarella empanadas and fried “Doh.”

Handwerkplatz is located in the 18th century Industrial Quarter along the Monocacy Creek, below Main Street.

Musikfest 2017 will be held from Friday, Aug. 4 to Sunday, Aug. 13.
