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 Gettysburg Brass Band Festival, made possible by donations from individuals and businesses, highlights the tradition of Brass Band. Performers from the Mid-Atlantic and the area perform at various locations. The Festival has a new home, the main stage and Community Brass Picnic will be held at the Gettysburg Lutheran Seminary. Plein Air Artists will also be on site, as will a Brass Band Petting Zoo, where children and adults will have the opportunity to try different brass instruments.
All donations in support of the festival are gratefully appreciated. Please write GBBF on the memo line of your check payable to Gettysburg Brass Band Festival, Inc. and mail to: GBBF, PO Box 3491, Gettysburg, PA 17325.
