Heritage Days 2021 Schedule


HERITAGE DAYS SCHEDULE FIRMING UP– A dynamic team of volunteers is working to retool and expand Cumberland's half a century of Heritage Days traditions. Under management of the Allegany County Historical Society and partnering with members of the Western Maryland Heritage Association, this year's event is being aided by grants from the Maryland Heritage Area Authority and the City of Cumberland and is bigger and more ambitious that any in memory.

This schedule is still a work in progress, and subject to change for program availability or public health adjustments, but the committee behind Heritage Days 2021 and the new Wills Creek Muster is in the home stretch.
