Commemorating a key battle of the French & Indian War, which occurred on October 12, 1758, Fort Ligonier Days draws many visitors each year to the quaint, picturesque town of Ligonier.
The three-day event features historic battle reenactments, top-rated juried crafts, delicious foods, delightful musical entertainment and a grand parade on Saturday at 11am.
With a backdrop of spectacular fall foliage as its setting, a variety of activities are found on the beautiful Ligonier Diamond, throughout the historic town, and at the authentically reconstructed Fort Ligonier and its world-class, recently-renovated, museum.
