Visit the birthplace of Memorial Day in Boalsburg. The Memorial Day Festival features food, music and craft vendors complete with two Civil War battle re-enactments at the historical Boal Mansion and Estate. 

Honor the soldiers of the past and present by visiting the Pennsylvania Military Museum to see their exhibits. On the grounds of the museum the AACA holds a car show for Memorial Day celebrators to enjoy. 

If you’re a history buff, stop in at the Boalsburg Heritage Museum to find out how the town formed, who made up its history and so much more. Nittany Theatre at the Barn will also be giving tours of their facility. 

Following the festival is the annual Memorial Day Service in the adjacent Boalsburg Cemetary. Join the famous three ladies in honoring our soldiers. 

Don’t forget to sign up for the Annual Boalsburg Memorial Day Run. The 3.8 mile course weaves through historic Boalsburg and welcomes both runners and walkers. All race proceeds benefit Boalsburg-area causes. Details on registration and parking can be found at the Nittany Valley Running Club website.

The Boalsburg Fire Company will host their annual parade and carnival with rides, food and more.
