Charter Day


Sunday, March 12

10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Celebrate Pennsylvania’s 341st Birthday with Free Admission to Bushy Run Battlefield.

Join the Bushy Run Battlefield Heritage Society for our 3rd Annual Charter Day Celebration! Pennsylvania was created when England’s King Charles II granted a charter to William Penn in 1681. Once each year, the Pennsylvania State Archives exhibits the original document to commemorate this momentous occasion. To help celebrate, Bushy Run Battlefield and other state-owned historical sites join in this celebration with their own Charter Day festivities.

Enjoy free admission to the museum, guided tours of the battlefield, and unique demonstrations by historical reenactors. Children’s games and crafts and a basket raffle will also be offered accompanied by a special appearance from William Penn himself!

Light refreshments will be available as well!
