Adams County Heritage Festival

Gettysburg Rec Park, 545 Long Lane

Join the Interfaith Center for Peace and Justice and the YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County for the 26th annual Adams County Heritage Festival on September 17! Held at the Gettysburg Recreation Park, this free event is a celebration of unity in our community!

The Adams County Heritage Festival is a celebration of ethnic music, food, and crafts that reflects the multicultural atmosphere of Adams County, Pennsylvania. It is a way of sharing our various traditions and appreciating the best that each ethnic group has to offer, as well as a commitment to community and the goal of living together in harmony.

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. 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, restaurateurs, and community organizations. Local non-profit organizations have display booths, usually grouped in tents. Carriage and pony rides are offered by a local vendor.
