Welcome to the Gettysburg National 19th Century Base Ball Festival

Welcome to the Gettysburg National 19th Century Base Ball Festival where premier vintage base ball clubs from across the country join for a weekend of spirited camaraderie and competition.  Keep up with festival news here.

The 6th Annual Festival will take place July 18 and 19, 2015 and will once again take place at the Schroeder Family Farm located at 965 Pumping Station Road, just minutes from the day 2 battlefields.  18 clubs from all over the country will be playing base ball the same way it was played in its infancy.  Starting with townball and the 1840s game all the way up to 1884 and many years in between.

If you are a club wanting to participate, we have just one spot left for a club outside of the Mid Atlantic area.  Join other clubs from New York, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Maine, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Washington DC, Tennessee, Ohio, and Michigan for 2 fun filled days your club will never forget.
