The Gettysburg 19th Century National Base Ball Festival takes place the third weekend in July every year since 2010. The festival is meant to show the public what a sporting event would have been like in Adams County and the surrounding region back in 1864.
The event is managed, operated, and promoted by the Elkton Base Ball Club and Exhibition Company, a 501c3 non-profit corporation with the help of the Gettysburg Generals Base Ball Club.
A significant amount of the proceeds each year goes to charitable causes in and around the Gettysburg Community. Please consider donating or purchasing a sponsorship to help us keep history alive for future festivals. You can make a donation by clicking the "Free tickets button" below or you can inquire in to sponsorships by clicking the "Sponsorship" button below. We hope you enjoy the weekend!
