The 2018 edition of the Gettysburg National 19th Century Base Ball Festival may have been a partial washout but that is not discouraging anyone from coming together next July 19-21 for the very special 10th Annual event in 2019!
If you are an established club and want to participate, contact us as soon as possible at info@GettysburgBaseBallFestival.com. There are very limited spots and we are looking for national participation once again. You are scheduled for 4 games over 2 days and we set up the schedule so there is plenty of time for sightseeing. You will probably play against clubs you have never seen or haven’t played for a long time. We’ll help you every step of the way if you want to come to town!
If you are a sponsor, a vendor, a member of the media, or a sutler, we’d love to hear from you. We have all kinds of great ideas to make next year special and we want you to be part of it. We are especially looking for Civil War era bands/musicians, Civil War era civilians (including medics, doctors, etc) as well as those who sell their 19th-century goods! If you are a maker of uniforms, bats, caps, balls, or anything else to supply the vintage game, let us know.
If you want to partner with us in doing an event on the grounds in conjunction with us, we’d love to hear from you too.
We are looking forward to making the best 19th century base ball event in America in to a really special event for not only the fans who come out but also the participants! We hope to hear from you!
