The Nittany Valley Society’s Willow Gathering is a celebration of the Nittany Valley and its people. As cultural stewards of the Nittany Valley, we are always inspired by the ingenuity, entrepreneurialism, and action-oriented nature of the students, professors, townspeople, alumni, and friends who define our community.
In celebrating that spirit, we also want to perpetuate it, so we are inviting everyone to come with your ideas for things you want to make happen in the Nittany Valley and we will help you put together an Action Plan to turn your idea into reality.
The Willow Gathering is an expression our of mission to “foster a spirit of community across time," and is one of the Nittany Valley's most distinctive annual occasions. Learn about our past celebrations.
