History comes to life during Pennypacker Mills' annual Civil War Event, a FREE family-friendly event held the first weekend of June.

Each year, with the help of generous sponsors, the Friends covers the costs for the artillery demonstrations, musicians, speakers and advertising for this event, which are generally in the neighborhood of $1,500. In addition, we provide bottled water for the reenactors and site volunteers.  Learn about sponsoring this event.

The Friends raises additional funds at this event by raffling a hand-made quilt generously donated by the quiltmaker.
