Leave a comment

Welcome to the 50th Annual Chadds Ford Days!
September 12-13, 2015

Originally founded as a commemoration of the  Revolutionary War Battle of the Brandywine fought on September 11, 1777, Chadds Ford Days has become a community institution that brings together past and present to celebrate our local heritage. Every year, it draws thousands of visitors to spend the weekend learning about history, shopping for crafts, enjoying live music, food and drink, and supporting local businesses.

To countdown this year’s event, we will be featuring a Spotlights Series on the participants, the historical precedents and other interesting facts about Chadds Ford Days. We will highlight the restaurants, the musical bands, the antique dealers, the crafters and the colonial demonstrators who will make the event a success. We will also talk about dispelling myths about colonial life and the American Revolution with Mythbuster Fridays.

Chadds Ford Days is a great family event as well, with an obstacle course, a moon bounce and other fun games to entertain the kids. You can even bring your dogs to participate in the canine demonstration course!

Tickets will be $10 for adults 18 and over. Kids, pets and parking will all be free.

So, stay tuned for all of the exciting updates on this year’s lineup and we hope to see you there!
