Entertainment & Theater

A visit to Gettysburg can easily be planned around one of our annual events or a great theater production.

You may just want to tag your upcoming family visit with an entertaining activity like a riverboat ride, a friendly go-kart competition or round of mini golf. Whatever entertains you, discover it here in Gettysburg. 

Totem Pole always promises a star or two on the stage. You never know who will appear on our stage. In 2016, Loretta Swit of TV's Mash appeared in Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks and in 2015 Melissa Gilbert of Little House on the Prairie appeared in Steel Magnolias.
