21st Annual Adams County Heritage Festival
The Adams County Heritage Festival is held in the Gettysburg Recreation Park on the third Sunday in September from 12 noon until 5 pm. Family-oriented entertainment includes music, dance, and a children’s play, as well as a full afternoon of children’s activities, including games, storytelling, and piñatas. No admission fee is charged. Continuously throughout the afternoon, craft vendors and demonstrators have displays in booths on the park grounds.
Ethnic foods are offered for sale by local citizens, church groups, restauranteurs, and community organizations. Local non-profit organizations have display booths, usually grouped in tents. A nominal fee is charged to all vendors and non-profit groups who exhibit at the Festival. Carriage and pony rides are offered by a local vendor.
