Revolutionary Germantown Festival
History goes on full display during the Revolutionary Germantown Festival, a day-long festival that celebrates the rich history of the historic neighborhood.
The celebration features costumed characters, live music, food and drink culminating with a reenactment of the Battle of Germantown, the only military battle ever fought within the borders of Philadelphia.
The festival events are centered at Cliveden, the summer home of the Chew family and the location of General George Washington’s failed attempt to liberate Philadelphia from British control in 1777.
The all-ages celebration features costumed characters, live music, food and drink.
The Revolutionary Germantown Festival largely takes place at Cliveden, but over the years has spanned more than a dozen additional historic attractions along Germantown Avenue, including Concord School & Upper Burying Ground, The Germantown White House, Johnson House Historic Site, Germantown Mennonite Meeting House and more.
The festival is jam-packed with events and all-age activities throughout the day. In past years, events have included a George Washington meet-and-greet, tours of the Cliveden mansion, performances by the MacGregor Pipe Band and more.
Guests can head down Germantown Avenue after the “battle” for Battle Bash, the official after-party at the historic Grumblethorpe house featuring reeanctors from the battle, food, beer, live music and more.
