C&O Canal Days
C&O Canal Days, or previously called Williamsport Days, is a town-wide festival taking place the last weekend in August each year. Normally the event kicks off on Friday evening with a free concert by the Williamsport Community Band in Byron Memorial Park. Saturday and Sunday are jam packed with family friendly events and entertainment. Arts, crafts and food vendors line the streets throughout the town center and throughout Byron Memorial Park. Many of the local merchants in the town center participate in the event by offering special discounts to draw in customers during this busy weekend!
The C&O Canal Days event is a celebration of local artisans and craftsmen in the area, but it is also a celebration of the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park. The C&O Canal is a vital resource for the Town of Williamsport. The National Park Service coordinates special events for the weekend of the C&O Canal Days event including Canal Boat tours, special nature walks, presentations about the canal, and more. This is the biggest event the Town of Williamsport hosts each year and has been a long standing tradition!
