Fourth of July Celebration: Family Picnic & Twilight Party

July 4 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us to celebrate Independence Day. Families and visitors to Gettysburg are invited to bring their own picnic basket or takeout meal, spread a blanket on the lawn in the side yard and enjoy the evening celebration. Lite appetizers will be provided while supplies last. Music, fun games and patriotic party favors will be part of the festivities that are free and open to the public.

There is so much to see, do and explore at Children of Gettysburg 1863®. Independence Day is an excellent time to experience the adventure in Gettysburg’s most family-friendly children’s history museum. Tickets are required to experience the museum adventure inside the museum before the celebration on the lawn. The museum is open 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.

The fireworks at Rec Park, a short walk from the children’s history museum, begin at 9:20 p.m.
