Heritage Days: When the Past Comes to the Present

The Washington Revels Jubilee Voices will be among the musical entertainers performing during
“The Civil War Comes to Rockville” event.
 Each year, on the last weekend of June, Heritage Montgomery hosts its signature event – the annual Heritage Days Celebration. The 16th annual countywide celebration on June 29 and 30 will offer visitors an opportunity to sample numerous sites representing the history, culture, and natural beauty of Montgomery County. See a short video of what the weekend has to offer.

This year, Heritage Days will include an added special event on June 29, “The Civil War Comes to Rockville,” a commemoration marking the 150th anniversary of Confederate General J.E.B. Stuarts’s ride into town. The event, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. at sites throughout the downtown area, will offer reenactments, music, crafts, dancing and lectures.

Meanwhile, many other locations around the County will be hosting activities for all ages and interests. This is a fun way to learn a lot about local history.

For the most up-to-date information and rundown of all that’s happening at the free event, visit the Heritage Days website.
