Pennsylvania Charter Day Celebration

Sunday, March 10

Noon – 4 p.m.

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

Join the Bushy Run Battlefield Heritage Society in celebrating the Commonwealth’s 338th Birthday at our 2nd 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 help celebrate, Bushy Run and other state-owned historical sites offer FREE admission to all visitors.

Tour Guides will be on hand to help guide visitors around the battlefield from noon until 3 p.m. and the museum and park will be open until 5 p.m.

Bushy Run Winery will also be joining us for our Charter Day celebration!

Bushy Run Market

April – September 2019 (4th Saturday of every month!)

8:00 a.m. – noon

Cost: FREE for both visitors and vendors!

Join us for Bushy Run Battlefield’s newest event, the Bushy Run Market! Beginning  Saturday, April 27, the Bushy Run Battlefield Heritage Society, Inc. (BRBHS) will host an open air market the fourth Saturday of every month during the 2019 season. A variety of vendors of all sorts of wares will be featured, and our concession stand will be open for drinks and light fare!

For Prospective Vendors:

On each Bushy Run Market day, the battlefield gate will open at 7 a.m. for vendors to set up in their 10′ designated space along ‘Memory Lane’.  There will be no set up after 7:30 a.m.  Vehicles will be allowed only to ‘drop off’ and ‘pick up’ during set up and closing time, depending on weather and ground conditions. Vendors are responsible for all tables, tents, and other equipment. No electricity will be provided. Vendor space requests will be on a FIRST COME BASIS! Products NOT acceptable at the market include: live animals, firearms (or ammunition, explosives, etc.), third party sales, or contract sales (products must change hands on the day of the market).

2019 Vendor Fees & Reservation Process TBD

Contact for all space requests and other questions. NO reservations are to be made through the society or museum operations.

End of the 2018 Season!

As of Sunday, October 28, Bushy Run has reached the end of the 2018 season and is now closed for the duration of the winter months.  Not to worry, though—we will  open again in Spring 2019 for another season of history, events, and fun!
