About the Weekend

The Gettysburg 19th Century Base Ball Festival will take fans back in time to 1864 to see what base ball (yes, two words!) was like in the tiny town of Gettysburg right before the battle changed the town forever. 

This event shows a different side of Gettysburg, the civilian side, and draws thousands each year to the event.  All kinds of ancillary events take place around the tournament. Check out the accommodations page for other things to do outside the festival, where to eat, and where to stay.
