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.
From historic taverns to ethnic cuisine, farm-to-table dining to unique edibles, the tastes of Gettysburg are sure to please every palate.
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 Arts Council will showcase artwork of high-school artists from across Adams County in February for the ninth annual All County Student Show. The exhibition will feature the best work of some of the county’s most talented high school artists, as selected by Adams County high school art educators from Littlestown, Fairfield, Gettysburg, Bermudian Springs and Upper Adams.
The exhibition opens Friday, January 24, in the Reception Hall at the Adams County Arts Council’s Arts Education Center. The Arts Council will host a First Friday artists’ reception on Friday, February 7, 5-7:30pm. The show will remain hanging through February 24.
This show was created to promote and celebrate youth art and art education throughout the county. Erica Werntz, Fairfield High School teacher says of her students work represented in this show, “I have been encouraging my students to go larger and to broaden their horizons through their artwork. Through their exploration on larger canvases, they have gained confidence and a new perspective. The Adams County Arts Council offers a great opportunity for our Fairfield community to come out and support the arts.”
On display this year, you will see a variety of non-objective, abstract and realistic artworks both 2D and 3D.
