Heritage Days

Each year, Heritage Montgomery hosts Heritage Days on the last weekend of June. Sponsored by HM since 2004, this FREE festival highlights historic, cultural, and outdoor recreation sites offering special programs including exhibits & demonstrations, live music, activities for children, and much more!  Heritage Days is the perfect chance to enjoy many small sites that are not regularly open to the public.

HERITAGE DAYS  2019
June 29 & 30 – 12 noon to 4pm

Join Heritage Montgomery in celebrating the 22nd annual Heritage Days with a weekend packed with fun, family-friendly, FREE events all across the county.

Explore historic houses, schools, churches, railroad stations, banks, and mills. See an 1899 observatory, trolleys and trains, unique farms, art exhibits, archaeology sites, and community museums; or stop by the grand opening of a newly restored 1830 C&O Canal lockhouse.

Learn about African American and Quaker history, environmental conservation efforts, farming and farm history, Native American culture, and discover more stories of local history and culture than you’ve ever imagined. And all the while, enjoy live music, games and crafts, children’s activities, storytelling, live animals, food and drink, and so much more!
