Fort Ligonier Days
10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The historic site comes to life with reenactors, artillery firings, historical demonstrations, bagpipe music and more to commemorate the historic October 12, 1758 attack on Fort Ligonier. Stop by Sutlers Row located on the front lawn of the museum. See Justin Cherry and his Half Crown Bakehouse and other 18th century-inspired artisans.
Visitor parking is not available at the Fort this weekend. Please park at one of the festival’s designated lots and ride a shuttle. One of the shuttle stops is located very close to Fort Ligonier (corner of South Market Street and East Loyalhanna Street).
French and Indian War reenactors bring the historic October 12, 1758 attack on Fort Ligonier that changed world history and inspired the annual Fort Ligonier Days to life with colorful pageantry, crackling musketry and cannon fire! Visitors can choose to watch from either the British or French side!
Half Crown Bakehouse
Justin Cherry, Mount Vernon’s Baker in Residence, and his Half Crown Bakehouse will greet visitors on the museum’s front lawn this weekend with batches of multi-grain bread made with heirloom grains served warm with salt pork butter, inspired by 18th century soldiers’ rations.
Visitors are encouraged to engage with reenactors and ask questions about clothing, living conditions, their military history and more.
Discover the important archaeological finds and how they informed the reconstruction of the fort to within mere inches of where it originally stood and how throughout the decades of Fort Ligonier Days, the reenactment of the October 12, 1758 Battle of Fort Ligonier has remained a central event during the festivities.
Regular admission applies.
