Each year, Heritage Montgomery hosts the FREE Heritage Days Celebration on the last weekend of June. Sponsored by HM since 2004, this countywide festival offers visitors the opportunity to discover venues from Silver Spring to Poolesville, Bethesda to Clarksburg – and everywhere in between. Heritage Days is the perfect chance to enjoy many small sites that are not regularly open to the public. Learn about the history of dairy farming, railroads, and trolleys; African American communities, astronomy, local arts & culture, and outdoor recreation. Many venues offer live music, games and crafts for children, and refreshments.
