The Delaware County Council has proclaimed September as History Month to create awareness of our County’s rich history and to celebrate our accomplishments. The goal is to bring together the people of Delaware County for a sparkling month of diverse historical, educational and cultural events throughout the County and conclude with an exciting CELEBRATION on September 29 (rain date October 6).
This large, fun-filled History, Art and Cultural Celebration will be held at Rose Tree Park. It will begin with the Historical Society’s 2nd Annual Ride for History for family cars and motorcycles from 9am to noon.
Noon to 5pm, the Celebration will be open at Rose Tree Park with sparkling entertainment in the amphitheater, a display of antique cars and motorcycles, a children’s fun area, a multitude of diverse food vendors, art shows and events honoring the history and traditions of the many ethnic cultures that make Delaware County unique. There will also be a participatory Native American presentation with music, vendors, and dancing! Come and meet Chief David Stands with Song Hughes of Philadelphia, a member of the Cherokee Nation who will speak about the history of the Cherokee people in the Delco area.
