Spring is just around the corner and Valley Forge and Montgomery County are already alive with some of the biggest events of the year. In March, kids can Join the Continental Army at Valley Forge Park, foodies can taste the best that Montco has to offer during Restaurant Weeks in King of Prussia and Hatboro, and shoppers will delight at the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival.
Here are a couple of ways to #MakeItMontco this weekend, thanks to our friends at Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board.
PHILADELPHIA SPORTSCARD & MEMORABILIA SHOW
March 2 – 4
Valley Forge Casino Resort
The Philadelphia Sportscard & Memorabilia show returns to the Valley Forge Casino Resort March 2 through 4, and it’s going to be the biggest show yet as the show celebrates the world champion Philadelphia Eagles with appearances by star quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Nick Foles, along with stars Alshon Jeffrey, Lane Johnson, Jason Kelce, and more.
JOIN THE CONTINENTAL ARMY
Children are invited to Join the Continental Army at Valley Forge on Saturday, March 2. This free event gives kids a chance to experience a small slice of life as a Continental soldier as they are issued wooden (dummy) muskets and taught how to stand, march, and carry their muskets as one of Washington’s soldiers would have done during the winter of 1777-78.
