Annual March In of the Continental Army Commemoration

  • Visitor Center 1400 North Outer Line Drive King of Prussia, PA, 19406 United States (map)

On December 19, 1777 General George Washington's Continental Army "marched in" to Valley Forge to set up winter quarters. This annual event commemorates their arrival and determination to persevere against insurmountable hardship and difficult conditions during their 6-month encampment. This December 19th, visit Valley Forge, take a candle-lit guided walk to the Muhlenberg Brigade huts where you'll encounter a living continental camp, and warm up in the Visitor Center with 18th century music, refreshments, and more!  

The General himself will be on hand speaking about the encampment.
