History

ChambersFest began in 1986 when local organizations came together to create a festival commemorating the town’s rebirth after its burning on July 30, 1864 during the Civil War. On that fateful day, Chambersburg became the only town north of the Mason-Dixon line to be burned by Confederates during the war. More than 500 structures were destroyed and 2,000 people left homeless. The townspeople were resilient, however, and rebuilt the town, which enabled Chambersburg to grow and prosper.

Today, ChambersFest celebrates the spirit of the townspeople with fun, family-friendly events thousands of people enjoy every year.
