Over 40 Free Events at 21st Heritage Days

Agricultural History Farm Park

The Heritage Days are returning this year to celebrate local culture, history and nature in Montgomery County.

This countywide festival is organized by Heritage Montgomery, which was created in 2003 by State officials and county leaders “to raise the profile of the area’s heritage, ensuring that residents and visitors alike understand and value the county’s past,” according to their website.

Highlights include:

  • Costumed historians at Agricultural History Farm Park in Derwood
  • Mill ruins and archaeological artifacts at Thomas Mill in Brookeville
  • African American art, music and artifacts at the Sandy Spring Slave Museum in Sandy Spring
  • Forestry, fishing, and archery at Izaak Walton League Conservation Farm in Poolesville
