Fort Ligonier Days 2019

“Diamond Jubilee: Preserving Ligonier’s History is the theme for Fort Ligonier Days, 2019. This town-wide celebration has grown over more than half a century to be one of the most anticipated and popular fall festivals in the tri-state area. You will find friendly merchants, helpful volunteers, an impressive array of arts and crafts, a dizzying variety of food and drink, lots of good music, authentic battle re-enactments at Fort Ligonier, a spectacular Saturday parade and an endless supply of Ligonier Valley history and hospitality throughout the weekend.

In Appreciation
