2015 Annual Reception Advance Registration Required

Friday, June 19 6:30 – 8:30 pm Park Pavilian & Theater Rain or Shine
Annual Reception

Grab your best sun hat and join us for an art-inspired evening on the lawn to dedicate the new outdoor pavilion and mini parade that was funded in part by The Friends of Valley Forge Park. The twilight picnic includes light food and refreshments, plus presentation of the General Steuben Award. This annual award recognizes those who embody Steuben’s enduring commitment, dedicated leadership and devotion to teamwork, meaningfully demonstrating the spirit of Valley Forge.

Throughout the evening, you can stroll through art-in-the-park paintings created by the Delaware Valley Art League during a three-day en plein air event taking place in early June. You’ll have the opportunity to meet the artists and be the first to preview and purchase artworks (proceeds benefit the Friends). The paintings then will open to the public on June 20th and remain on display in the Visitor Center through the summer. In case of inclement weather, the Reception will be held in the Visitor Center.

RSVP required by June 16th. For more information email
