2019 French Creek Heritage Event Cancelled

With deep regret and after much deliberation, the organizers have decided to cancel the 2019 French Creek Heritage Event. Due to a variety of challenging forces, unforeseen circumstances and scheduling difficulties, the planning committee has decided to cancel this year's event, originally scheduled for July 13-14. We look forward to having the event return from this pause next year, with the 2020 event theme of "Dawn of Independence: The American Revolution on the Frontier". We apologize for any inconvenience our decision has caused, and sincerely appreciate your understanding. We look forward to the return of the French Creek Heritage Event next year.
