Yes we have a famous battlefield to tour by car, bicycle, horseback, and even on foot but we boast a wealth of activities beyond those historic acres.
With adventures to suit every budget, Gettysburg and Adams County businesses offer plenty of packages to help visitors create their dream vacations.
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.
*This event will be taking place at the Gettysburg Area Rec Park. In the case of inclement weather, the Heritage Festival will still take place inside at the YWCA, but the Kids Bicycle Parade and Community Walk will be cancelled.
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, restauranteurs and community organizations. Local non-profit organizations have display booths, usually grouped in tents. Carriage and pony rides are offered by a local vendor.
